Description

I did this painting in honor of the 500th year anniversary of the discovery of Florida. I imagined that it must have been a glorious sight from the various historical descriptions. I tried to image being on one of the three ships on that voyage. This is intended to be the view from that one ship out at sea looking towards the other two ships as they approach the shore. Since they are going west...I made this a sunset like some I have seen in the area.
How did the state of Florida get its name?

How did the state of Florida get its name?
According to "Florida Place Names: Alachua to Zolpho Springs" by Allen Morris (Pineapple Press, 1995):

"On Easter Sunday, 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon and those with him in three ships saw a small, unknown island. They sailed northwest for three days and then west-northwest for two days more. Again they saw land, but the coast was so long that they knew this was not an island like the one glimpsed five days before.

The lawyers who served the King of Spain thought possession could by cinched by naming places discovered by the explorers; thus, Ponce de Leon was faced with the problem of what to call this land on which he yet had not set foot.

Writing a hundred years later, court historian Antonio de Herrara told how Ponce de Leon solved the problem:

"Believing that land to be an island, they named it
Florida, because it appeared very delightful, having many
pleasant groves, and it was all level; and also because
they discovered it at Easter, which as has been said, the
Spaniards called Pasqua de Flores, or Florida."

The Spanish pronounced it Flor-EE-da. The English, coming later, kept the name but changed the pronunciation to suit their tongues, so Flor-EE-da became FLOR-i-da."
