Punta Gorda Nights
The streets of Punta Gorda were packed on St. Patrick’s Day as a group of us set up our easels to paint the activity. The Irish festival fell on the same night as the monthly art walk, and an antique car show gave visitors even more to see. I selected a crowded bar to paint. I had painted it once before, but wanted to do a better job capturing the energy and drama of the bar’s outdoor patio on a warm spring night.
