Key West - Open Air Art Festival at Schooner Wharf

He designs and makes all his own jewelry and it's very good
Key West has lots of festivals but the best one in our opinion is the one held by Schooner Wharf. It's right outside their restaurant and they always seem to have the best artisans. Ann shopped around and found jewelry from the same person she bought from years ago. He always comes back to the same place, the same spot, every year.

Nice top, all hand painted
Next, it was on to the hand-painted shirts which were quite well done.  I bought one for Ann and she bought one herself. I don't know how well they will wash but they look beautiful now. We had winds of 25 to 30 kts but it was fine once you got off the docks.

Mike Rooney is a local artist but with talent. He held a reception today at 5:00 at the Green Street Gallery so Ann had to go. He paints in oils which is not a medium that ann works in but the paintings are fabulous. Ann had a great time.

On Sunday it's jazz time at the Green Parrot so we have our day planned out for that.
