So of course I said yes, and she whipped out her portfolio and said "pick one." Sucker that I am I picked one. So for $20, I sat with her while she created a watercolor for me. Of course I took pictures, however, my settings were wrong. Imagine that.Seriously, we chatted for over an hour on every subject under the sun. She was engaging, fun and sweet. I so enjoyed our time. She worked as a correspondent for Newsweek (retired), took care of her elderly parents and had her watercolors showcased at a local museum AND never married. She thinks Mr. Right is out there somewhere. What a cool cool lady.

Artist in Old Town
I cruised through Old Town a few times, and lo and behold there was this lady sitting in the shade on the bench. She was busy at her work and every now and then she'd look up to see what was passing her way.I cruised by a few times wondering how to photograph her when I had DOH! moment. So I asked her if she'd mind if I took her picture. I love her face. So she said wouldn't your rather photograph my art?
