Early One Morning
Acrylic on Canvas, 5x7

Memorial Day is a somber holiday, marked by taking time to remember those who have given their lives in service to their country. Whether you attend a memorial publicly or give thought privately, we owe a great deal to the men and women who have fallen in our behalf. Our armed services are a great strength to our country. Fly your American Flag proudly this weekend to show them your support.

If you live on Marco Island and you're having guests this weekend, or you haven't been yourself, take a jaunt to Otter Mound. It's a delightful restoration by the Marco Island Historical Society, where you can learn a little about Marco's past, and see the shell walls built from the original Calusa ruins. Otter Mound. Otter Mound used to be a magnificent Calusa site but much of it was destroyed before it's value was understood. Still, it's a well done little gem, a lovely walk and learning opportunity, too.

The votes are in and counted, and Tracy Gudgel's Siren's Moon over Marco was a clear winner for the Artists at the Esplanade Moon Over Marco Art Walk. It was such a fun evening and our guests really enjoyed looking at all the various artistic styles and being able to vote for their favorite. Congratulations, Tracy! Save the last Wednesday of the month for our next event!
And have a wonderful weekend!
