Island art and music are now a double feature at Coconut Coast Studio’s weekly gallery reception.
Elaine Estern opens her home-and-gallery Wednesday afternoons, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. A few dozen visitors and locals generally show up to enjoy the art, the beauty of the sunset on Frank Bay, and Rich Greengold’s classical playing.
Also in this week’s St. John podcast, Estern talked about the receptions as well as how she manages to be productive despite the lure of island time. One of her secrets – she has three easels around her home so, whatever the time of day or light conditions, she’s ready to be inspired. She also explains the inspiration for a new series of 50 paintings of her year-old Chocolate Labrador, Truffle.
