Plein Air Painters To Capture Forgotten Coast

Mark your calendars for this wonderful event and if you're looking for a place to stay, A Tropical Breeze is still available during the 7th annual Florida's Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational.


More than 20 nationally acclaimed artists will gather on Florida's Forgotten Coast in early May to participate in the 7th annual Florida's Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational, America's Great Paint-Out, May 3-13, 2012. Painters will set up their easels and pull out their brushes to document the landscape and culture of this last vestige of authentic "Old Florida" – the coastal stretch of scenic North Florida between Mexico Beach and Alligator Point.
"Plein Air", a French word, simply translated means "open air". The roots of plein air painting are found in 19th-century Europe. An Englishman, John Constable, believed that artists should forget "formulas" and trust their own vision in finding truth in nature.

Cape San Blas or Hilton Head, Where Would You Rather Be?

A Tropical Breeze- Cape San Blas
Why am I in Hilton Head when I should at A Tropical Breeze on Cape San Blas?  Instead of enjoying the beautiful white, uncrowded beach in front of A Tropical Breeze,  I find myself in the land of brown sand, jelly fish and packed beaches, in other words, spring break on Hilton Head Island. Did I mention the traffic?

Hilton Head
OK, maybe that's a bit dramatic.  The weather has been great and we have done lots of bike riding, however I do miss walking out the front door of A Tropical Breeze and heading to the beach.  I hope our guests at A Tropical Breeze are having a wonderful time. Happy Easter to all of our Cape San Blas friends!
