History of a Painting - Angelo's Hot Dog World,

Ft. Pierce, Florida

 

Acrylic painting by Larry Johnston©

During my travels to the southern states to exhibit in Art Festivals, during the Winter months, we regularly stayed at a campground, in Ft. Pierce, Florida. As you know, I am always on the lookout for nostalgic places to paint.

In the early years of  going to Florida, which would be in the mid to late 1980s, we discovered Angelo's Hot Dog World on Hwy 1, in Ft. Pierce.

I think he eventually moved close by to 304 Gardenia Ave, Ft. Pierce, just off Hwy 1.  I no longer have the painting, as it was sold to a young couple, at a show in central Georgia, called Cotton Pickin' Days.

Larry I am a bit partial to hot dogs, and have stopped at more than one hot dog stand that resembles the one in your painting :)

All of your paintings come with a story, which does make them even more valuable if the buyer remembers the story when they by it.
