on the Forgotten Coast
My daughter Elizabeth and I decided to take a quick trip to the beach. We are staying in Port St. Joe, Fl, not far from Apalachicola. It just so happens that this week is the Forgotten Coast paintout. Went to watch the sunset from the marina tonight and there was a group there, painting the sunset and noctournes. Fun! I've never watched anyone try to do a noctourne before, looked kind of tricky to me. Richard Oversmith was one of the painters, I have liked what I've seen of his work. Also ran into Lori Putnam and Dawn Whitelaw at the wet painting display. Beautiful area here, very quiet. I've gotten LOTS of boat pictures, there are shrimp boats and oyster boats everywhere.
