Manasota Key Map

Just completed this map of Manasota Kay (Lemon Bay) Florida. It's 24"wide x 60" long. I added an Osprey flying over the bay and a Great Blue Heron along with a Pelican over the Gulf of Mexico. 

It's framed in a solid mahogany frame.  

This Great Blue Heron seems to be floating over the bay. Check out that shadow, the sun is beginning to set over the beach. 

I added these two sea gulls to add interest to the map.

Finally, I just had to add a Pelican to the Map.

Beautiful Great Sacandaga Lake Map

Amazingly, I've been painting vintage style decor map of lakes for the last five years and I think I have become a map elf (see my studio picture below). Anyway, one of my favorite things about painting maps is the comments that I often receive from customers about how much they love the maps. Here's just one comment from a very recent customer. 


"Hi Larry, I received the map today of Great Sacandaga Lake. It's absolutely beautiful. I bought it as a gift for my cousins who have a place up there and I visit regularly during the summer. I'm sure they're going to love it as much as I do. Thank you again!" 




My maps make great gifts for the lake house owner, lake lover, or fisherman. I have over two hundred on my website that can be purchased right from the site, or I can do custom and personalizes lake, river or bay maps, too. I have maps of Lake Winnipesaukee, Table Rock Lake, Greers Ferry, Lake Lanier, Gaston Lake, Choctawhatchee Bay, Toledo Bend, Raystown, and many others. Oh yeah, I hide a tiny mermaid in the waters of all my maps that folks love to search for. Find out more interesting facts about my treasured maps by going to LeoMaps.com

Oh yeah, this is part of my studio! I think I have become a map elf!
