Goombay is this weekend. It kicks off the 2 weeks of festivities for Fantasy Fest. Its a favorite local event and I went with my friend Mindy last night, it has become a tradition. We drink some cocktails and eat conch and people watch. There seemed to be plenty of pork this year. Lots of interesting food booths. It was a beautiful evening with lower humidity and nice skies. Conch salad man Crispy cracked conch Lots of vendors Conch salad in a pineapple with a few conch fritters perched on top Dog friends As the sun set it got busier and more people showed up. I took a picture of this house last year in thoughts I would paint it so its back on my list. Full moon over Key West.
The studios of Key West is having a fund raiser and 40 local artists are painting bikes to be auctioned off next February. they will be ridden in the Fantasy Fest parade and the Xmas parade and be displayed all over key west. I have just finished mine and saw it today for the first time put together as well as a few other finished bikes. It is going to be an amazing display!
Thursday's Painting group has started up again for the season. It was great to see folks and we did a lot of painting and a lot of talking. The weather was almost cool and the wind was blowing but we painted Key Limes. I finished this up in my backyard later in the afternoon.
I have been working in my studio daily on a project to benefit The Studios and not doing much of my own work but I did finally finish this new sunflower painting. It has some nice apples and a bright cloud filled sky. It is 16"x20" and is $350.00. Thanks John!
