MATLACHA FISH SELLERS
oil on panel
5" x 7"

This building had been repainted so often it looked like an abstract painting. Even the old signs were works of art. Loved the blues. Loved the red hose which matched a red sign hidden behind the concrete block shelf over on the right. Earlier, someone wondered if the men were starting a barbecue, turned out they were just burning weeds and fireants with a blow torch connected to the propane tank.
Top version with new additions. Went by the place a week later and the men had a red cooler (great addition color-wise) and a sign, "crabs, fish, oysters." The sign was across the street but I painted it on the porch instead.
