The Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the official 27th Annual Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament artist. Brendan Coudal is back for the 2017 Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament, with a few of the ladies’ favorite things – mermaids, dolphins and tarpon.
The art, titled “Mermaids Do it Better,” depicts a mermaid winning the Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament for the first time ever.
“I created this painting for a patron who’s a big fan of mermaids, dolphins and tarpon and had a lot of fun with it,” stated Brendan. “I think this piece captures the essence of the tournament, celebrating beauty, fun and sport, and I hope my mermaid brings good luck to all the anglers!”
A limited edition of 200 posters signed by Brendan is available for purchase now at the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce or on the chamber website,
