Wekiva Island Bar

I did a painting of the Wekiva Island Bar and posted it on this blog in October of 2013. I mentioned that the bar had burnt down. In less than six months the bar was completely rebuilt and opened again on the same spot. I created this painting for the contractor who built the bar. His only request for this painting was that I include his motorcycle in the painting. That's his Harley in the front along with the bikes of some of the other patrons that frequent this fine establishment. The owners of the bar do a lot to support the Wekiva River, the local community and the artists that come there to paint the river. They also offer canoe and kayak rentals so you can enjoy the Wekiva River. Next time you are in the area, won't you stop by and give them your support?
