Key West picture of the Month - May - Mario Sanchez painting

Bit different this time, it's a painting by Mario Sanchez.

Here's some detail on Mario Sanchez who was born in Key West, started as an artist in 1930 and died in Key West in 2005, aged 96.

If you're interested and, more importantly, have lots of money (!) here's a good place where you can buy some of his work - from Nance at Gallery on Greene.

Fisherman's Dream by Mario Sanchez of Key West



















I took this image from the collection of his work at the East Martello Fort and Museum in Key West.  It's entitled Fisherman's Dream and it's a great painting.
