It is commonplace to hear people talking about buying art as a art_-_145516_-_beach_access_-_26x34financial commitment, but should this be the true reason we buy art? Big auction houses and bigger galleries encourage this particular kind of thinking because it will help them to sell art to the upper crust of contemporary society. They treat art more like a investment than what it truly is, which is loveliness to be enjoyed by anyone.

The fact of the matter is, there are more artists and works of art than there are spaces on a gallery wall. This means that the galleries have to be very picky about the works they take in, because they are in the business of making money by representing artists whose work will sell quickly.

I was surprised when a friend at college said to me, “I envy you. As an artist you see beauty in everything”. Until then I had not realized that we don’t all see the same thing and that my talent was not just a propensity to create but also a unique way of appreciating what I saw.

It is not just the view, scenery or objects that matter but how, as an artist I am able to perceive and interpret them. I see things that are uplifting and inspiring to me and I capture my vision in my paintings from the subjects I feel a deep connection with.

My paintings shine a spotlight on the beauty of God’s palette that I see and I am always pushing myself to hone and evolve my artistic skills to create art that is fresh, original and a genuine expression of my personal view and connection with my beautiful surroundings.

You can find me and my paintings every Sunday from 8am to 1pm at the Siesta Key Farmers Market in the Village at 5104 Ocean Blvd. Siesta Key, Florida. Come by and say hello. My paintings are shipped FREE to the lower US 48 and Canada.

In addition Tropical silk paintings by Rita Van Gorder, plant varieties of bromeliads by Jason Mellica, photography by Mike Lee Beck and renowned artist Lloyd Dobson Artist exhibiting tropical beach themed oil paintings with FREE shipping to the lower US 48 & Canada and many more vendors including live music.

After walking the beach come into the Village and check out some 1_-_the_hub_baja_grill_at_night_-_templateof the restaurants, bars and boutiques. One of my favorites is The Hub Baja Grill located at the stop sign. Pan-Latin fare & margaritas are the draws at this festive, tropical-themed eatery with live music.

Another favorite is The Cottage. The staff are friendly, you feel like 1_-_siesta_key_the_cottage_-_templatethey could be family. They have a couple of nice sitting options, I.e. front porch to watch the people walking by, inside if it’s too hot and the inner courtyard which has some great island music. The food is above average with some Asian and other influences. Great spot to meet folks.

If late night is your thing then The Beach Club is the place to go for late night dancing and socializing.

My Favorite Sunday “Funday” afternoon schedule is the following:

1) Breakfast sandwich from Alex’s Village Cafe booth at the Siesta Key Farmers Market.

2) Selling my paintings at the the Siesta Key Farmers Market.

3) Going to The Hub for a great lunch, island live music and adult beverages after leaving the Siesta Key Farmers Market.
our thing then
4) Late afternoon for reggae music by Desi Adams and great food at Gilligan Island Bar.1 - Desi Adams Playing At Gilligans
