Happy New YearPosted on December 31, 2008 3:07 PM
20 years ago, 6 of us flew in a 6-seater plane from Virginia to West Palm Beach, FL to the Bahamas (over the Bermuda Triangle -- one of us was a pilot). In the Bahamas we rented a fully-stocked sailboat and for 10 days cruised the Bahamian islands.

On Green Turtle Cay we visited the Blue Bee Bar and got to know the proprietor, Miss Emily. We created such a stir that I believe most of the town was at the bar that night. One of my friends, artist Dave Freda (an artist and a climber) was doing climbing moves along the beams after he had a few "Goombay Smashes"!

I took a break and sat at the bar talking to very soft-spoken Miss Emily. I am grateful I took her picture -- since I used this to create my painting when I came back to the U.S. Miss Emily (now deceased) was very well known throughout the Bahamas.

Thank you for visiting my shop -- Elizabeth

NOTE: "Miss Emily" is already in a bronze metal frame -- I can include this for no charge if you would like! ALSO, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS PAINTING -- WE CAN NEGOTIATE A DEAL! (just ask me).
