painting done by the 12 Artist Colony at the Esplanade artists
The Artist Colony at the Esplanade was recently asked to participate in a project to bring a large American flag to fly over Marco Island. We decided to each interpret "flag" in our own way, and artist Lee Horton merged the paintings together into one frame.
The painting was given to the Flag Committee, to help raise awareness and to be used as a fundraising tool. On Monday, the painting was in the lobby of Marco Island City Hall, where the Flag committee was to make a presentation.
The painting will be on display at Iberia Bank for you to see. Since I didn't get a close-up, you'll have to visit it there to guess which artist did which painting? Some might surprise you!
