Memory from Key West

 When we were bike riding in Key West last weekend I spotted some pretty oil paintings on Duval Street and David let me stop and take a look.  I knew when I saw this one by local artist Jeanine Moes I had to have it.  Luckily, the price was right!

It's an oil of Hemingway's House.  I loved the colors and am thinking now about framing it (or not) and where to hang it.  For now, I'm going to put it on an easel in the kitchen while I think it through. 

We have a lot of pretty prints and water colors in the house, but lately I've been getting into oils.
I think I first got interested when our friend Janet in Mexico had an art show at my favorite local restaurant.  We bought this one of Real de Catorce, Mexico. 

And I really liked this one that I bought on our trip around Lake Michigan last year when we stopped for a day on Mackinac Island.

Here's me with the artist.

And I've mentioned how much I love Ricki Jill's artwork.
Speaking of, don't forget about our Reading Blog Party on February 20th!

Bonnie *blushes a very unattractive shade of red* You are the sweetest! Thanks so much. Of course you know I love any post about art. I think it's so neat to bring home original, local art from trips. I think the painting of Hemingway's house is fantastic. Let me know if you frame it and where you place it (if you move it from your kitchen).
