Artwalk in Florida

I love to look at Art. I guess I'm sort of a nerd that way. I like to look at the paintings and try to figure out what the artist had in mind when they painted it. In St Augustine Florida they have a self guided St. Augustine Artwalk one on the first Friday and Saturday of every month from 5 to 9pm. Its one of St. Augustine's most popular cultural events. Over 20 galleries participate in the event and you can enjoy the latest exhibits, music, entertainment and refreshments . The tours begin at Rembrandtz Fine Gifts for Fun People, 131 King Street. St. Augustine Sightseeing Trains and Old Town Trolleys offer attendees a complimentary shuttle service to most of the galleries. Shuttles run on a continuous loop every 30 minutes. Attendees can enjoy a complimentary ride to several destinations on the ArtWalk.

One of the featured artists is Peter O'Neill who is most famous for his poster of a Sept. 11th Fireman. Theres a link to his website on the event website and I got to look at the rest of the stuff he has done. He uses a lot of rich colors in his paintings.
