- Afternoon: painting under a palm tree the very popular ice cream/hot dog/sandwich shop, Kooky Mookys. I may add some people in there later. There were plenty of them!
- Early Evening: met Jerry Stocks (one of my 100 Faces who traveled from Beaufort to Northern Virginia to sit for me ... along with her daughter and grandsons) and her husband, Ray, for a short, nice visit during Art Walk!
- Continued the Art Walk! to visit ArtLofts ... working studios and gallery for seven artists in Beaufort. Bought a wonderful painting of her cat, Emma, from Mary Grayson Segars. Take a look at her work. It's wonderful!
