Our skies are transitioning from dramatic clouds and extreme sunsets to a less rainy time of year when visitors and part time residents come to be in our beautiful partof the world.
As the humidity drops, our skies clear to a storybook blue and our roads get busier. Changes are happening, some of which are subtle and some are more dramatic. We are fortunate as Naples boasts a number of wonderful artists that interpret the beauty around us in their own styles and mediums for all to see and appreciate.
One such artist is Phil Fisher, who has been living and painting in Naples for over 48 years. Our lovely dramatic skies are a favorite subject or element in his watercolors and oils created from the emotion he feels when experiencing it.
In fact, professional singer songwriter, Marie Nofsinger, recognized the importance of the skies he paints and wrote a song about his work titled “Phil Fisher Skies”. What a wonderful tribute!
You can see his work and see him painting daily at Phil Fisher Gallery, 810 12th Avenue South, Naples, or out on location interpreting a charming scene onto his canvas.
His work along with four other artists will be featured in a show called, “Naples, What It Used To Be”, opening with an artist reception from 5 to 8 PM on Sunday November 10th, in Crayton Cove, where 8th St. S. & 12th Ave. S. meet at the flagpole by the Bay.
