The Garden of Dunedin

If Bright House Field is a Field of Dreams, its neighboring town 3 miles to the North is a Garden of Eden.  Scottish families originally settled the City of Dunedin in the Nineteenth Century. Two Scotsmen, J.O. Douglas and James Sumerville named the settlement Dunedin, the original name of Edinburgh, their hometown in Scotland.

The Chamber of Commerce takes great pride in the charm and appearance of Dunedin, as well it should.  One of our favorite stops in the town is an art gallery that is just off the Pinellas Trail – a haven for walkers and bike riders.

The gallery I’m referring to is The Painted Fish, home to the talented artist, Bill Renc.  Bill just published a book, Painting the Town and  the Beaches, featuring some of his finest work.

The cover of the book, Painting the Town and the Beaches, is a picture of Bill Renc painting the Welcome to Dunedin sign of the Scotchman in his kilt along Edgewater Driver.  Here’s a copy of the painting as it hangs framed on the wall of the gallery.
