En Plein Air: The Tropical Breeze Casino on Dock (Acrylic, 12 x 16)

It was Ft. Myers Beach Art Association's Plein Air Painting Day. I went to Salty Sam's Marina this morning. I had painted the building before. For a change, I chose to paint the boat docked down the stream toward the Estero Blvd. Bridge. Not till after I finished the painting did I find out that her name was Tropical Breeze Casino. I was surprised and had the question: Was it  true that gambling was allowed here at the Ft. Myers Beach? Jennifer helped me search online with her smart phone. It turned out the boat was registered at Key West. It came to Ft. Myers Beach only seasonally. And I don't think people can board the boat here to gamble. Thank god.
