Fresh Paint

Fishery Cottage

Took my new Strada Mini on a test drive at the Fishery in Placida, Florida.  This cottage had a fresh coat of paint which made me wish I had brought along some of my pthalo colors.  A few shades of purple and teal simply can't be mixed with my simple limited palette.  

Will be painting here next Monday with the Peace River Painters, last paintout of the season.  Plenty of shade and colorful scenery.  One of the last tiny villages in this area with real old Florida character.  Won't last long, sale signs everywhere.  The shrimp boat, Seminole Trader is being cut up for scrap metal.  Sad.

The Strada Mini... everything I hoped for!

My niece and her hubby just bought a little cottage on LGI.
They are from Naples and love the laid back (quickly disappearing) "old FLorida" vibe and setting.
Great job on this little gem.
