Artist's Description

You just can't beat a Florida sunset at the beach!!! After a bad day this was a great ending!!! This trip to Howard Park, near Tarpon Springs Florida was incredible. It was snowing in Chicago and New York on this day, and here it was like being in Paradise! With calm gulf water and gentle breezes on a nice warm day. With the sun setting I just wanted to enjoy this moment as I always do! I hope you enjoy the "Ambience Of The Gulf"!!!
