Hello All,

I was in St Petersburg, Florida, at the start of this week. From my studio above the gallery, I look out on to the yacht basin.

When Malcolm and I first came here fifteen or so years ago, St. Petersburg was the butt of many geriatic jokes, only stirring from its slumber when the Cardinals arrived for Spring Training. Today, downtown St. Petersburg is alive with new restaurants, elegent shops, a movie complex, concerts and its own major league team, the Devil Rays.

On Tuesday afternoon I sat by the water sketching yachts against the background of the Vinoy Hotel. I painted this scene from the opposite side of the harbor several years ago. The prints of that painting have all gone and for some time people have been asking me to do a second painting. I am making no promises, but the sketching went well and so there is a good chance I will have the painting done and the prints available in the fall.

Having been away from Mathews for several weeks, Malcolm and I have spent the weekend in the garden doing a tidy up. Last week's much needed rain has given a boost to both my plants and my weeds. Malcolm took Saturday afternoon off from the garden to take granddaughters Elizabeth and Caroline (Jake and Betsy's children) to the Yacht Club pool.

Next weekend we will be in Charlottesville for the Society's weekend training for its Chapter leaders. On Saturday night, we will be hosting a party for them at the Barn in Waynesboro.
