Pitcher and Grapes


Pitcher and Grapes
Originally uploaded by linfrye
We arrived in Savannah at dusk last night ... and what a gorgeous night it was! We found our B&B, checked in, unpacked a bit, and walked to a fabulous restaurant -- Vic's On the River! Our walk took us down live oak lined streets and parks, limbs and Spanish moss hanging over our heads like protective umbrellas ... fountains, street lights ..... I cannot wait to take photos today -- and, hopefully, get in a sketch or two. Incredible looking shops lined the riverfront and we could see artists, even in the dark, sitting there painting the wharf and boats ... oh my gracious! And to think, we only have TODAY! LOL

The painting I'm posting was done from a photograph prior to our leaving ... I sketched a few things for posting later this week should my camera not be able to capture my sketches from here ...

Meantime ...coffee is waiting! and it's supposed to be another beautiful day...

So glad you are getting away for some R&R. The painting is lovely -- reminds me of an old oil painting, hanging in a museum, from an era long ago!
Soak up all of Savannah that you can!
Hugs,
Lorraine
