High-Livin' in Fairhope

Today  was a hot one in lower Alabama, but my friends, Jami and Joanne and I wanted to see the Eastern Shore Art Association's "Watercolor & Graphic Arts Society" show over in Fairhope. Today was the last day to see the show. We made a glorious day of it starting with the exhibit.  Joanne had two pieces in this juried show and she never disappoints...Joanne is an amazing artist in whatever medium she chooses. Two of her nudes from figure group were on exhibit.
