Summer is going by quickly with many days of afternoon rain and dramatic sunsets. Phil Fisher likes these days of colorful clouds and skies, especially. It gives him the opportunity to paint the exciting colors and light. The quiet of this time of year is nice, too. He works on paintings of birds you might catch a glimpse of in the shallows of a mangrove tree or the “Footprints in the Sand” at the beach exciting the color that bounces off the sand affected by the water. The wading birds are a favorite subject as they are characters of grace and charm, standing still in a floral background or in the water, fishing for dinner.
This time of year, we have the time to enjoy them and their beauty and it’s nice to save them in the form of a painting to enjoy for years to come. His works can be seen at Phil Fisher Gallery in Crayton Cove during the months of September and October. While in the area, a visit to Random Acts of Art, Paws Pet Boutique and Shannon Green Jewelers is in order, as well. There is no waiting at the five restaurants within walking distance of the shops. Crayton Cove is a unique commercial area with a laid-back charm, worth the visit. Located at the intersection of 8th St S and 12th Ave S by the Naples Bay.
