I painted this piece in the small North Florida town of Carrabelle. While there's not much to this little place, there is an absolutely charming old waterfront. A waterfront where one can see a mixture of working boats, moored to old docks that look like they are about to fall down, to sailboats peacefully waiting for the next adventure. As luck would have it, they were having there annual Riverfront Festival this particular weekend. The street was lined with vendors and festivity, not to mention, fresh, cold, Apalachicola oysters! In addition to getting my "oyster fix," I got to enjoy the live bands while working on this piece. A nice day indeed.
