Food chains

Ross has done a series of fish paintings, this one is called The Food Chain. I like those cute and colorful sharks – and don’t miss the hook! This next one is my favorite so far and called Mango Dive:

We have gone down to Key West several times, it is only 30-some miles from Big Pine Key. On the waterfront we found the Red Door Gallery. It is full of paintings by many artists, including the owner Rene who comes from Canada. Rene has a very amiable personality and is fun to be around. Now his Key West gallery also has a selection of Ross’ paintings that are starting to sell.

Red Door Gallery
812 Caroline St, Key West, FL 33040
For nearly 20 years, owner and artist Rene Blais has offered affordable island and carribean inspired artwork.
Make this one a must see so check it out.

Down here in the Keys, the winds can be pretty strong around this thin stripe of islands surrounded by huge bodies of water – the Atlantic Ocean and the Mexican Gulf. One night I woke up from a big bang that turned out to be a coconut falling from one of the beautiful palm trees down on the roof of our little cottage. When I talked to my sweet mother in Denmark on Skype and told her about the falling coconuts in our yard, she got an little concerned and suggested we should wear bicycle helmets for protection! But so far Ross and I have not been hit by these fruits from above. They have fallen in our yard and turn out to be a favorite spot for the small lizards to sunbathe.

    I love your stories of your travels. they take me right there with you! Your mom’s idea concerning the bike helmets is brilliant, how cute. LOL!! I am so excited for Ross, having his art in a gallery in Key West. I do like the sharks in the food chain piece, they have cute little faces but like light and dark, they will eat you alive! Your notes and pics make me happy when I receive them. Can’t wait to have you back here in SF! Much Love to you and Ross, Debby

      Thanks Debby, what a lovely feed back 🙂 Yes, I also got a kick out of my mom’s idea about bike helmets as protection from falling coconuts. That would definitely be a first down here! The boat is out of the water, tomorrow we start going slowly back to Santa Fe. See you soon,
      XOXO Hanne
