Plein air painter - Ringling School of Art

Plein air painter - Ringling School of Art

Yesterday, at the Ringling School of Art, I met up with artist/instructor Patrick Fiore.
Both of us as ex Uticans had a common connection. We did a tour of some of the classrooms and galleries on campus.
I got a chance to see some of Pat's works in progress in his studio off campus. Pat's a very interesting artist.
You can see some of his work HERE

After that it was off to Anna Maria island for some sightseeing and lunch at Rotten Ralph's

Try their seafood gumbo-with a kick !
We stopeed to get some great photos of Coquina Beach on the way back

And we finished at Michael's on East with a a late dinner in the lounge with live music and some seafood and walked out into the still warm Florida night...
