The 80 year old St Petersburg Florida hot dog stand Coney Island Grill is the subject of a new acrylic painting on watercolor paper. It measures 30×22 and, like most of Caleb‘s recent subtropical southern subjects, has a pastel-ish feel, partially due to the marble flour he mixes into his paint. This gives the paint a matte, dry-brushed look that recalls pastel chalk work.
This painting is currently available for viewing at Interior Motives Gallery at 1110 Central Avenue in downtown St Petersburg, Florida. Caleb has sold several views of this local landmark at Interior Motives, and gallery owner Leslie Curran says she has no problem finding them homes.
