This week's theme for My Town Shoot Out is "Introduce a Friend".

Betty Keigler is one of my favorite people.  She is my art buddy.  We traipse about town once a month (or more) going to galleries and outdoor spaces looking for inspiration.  We're also in the same book club.

Here we are at Naples Bay

Betty's studio.
Betty loves painting - watercolors and oils - oils being her medium of choice.

Plein aire
We spent the better part of a morning down at the bay.  I took photos while Betty sketched.

A treasured gift.  
A lovely watercolor of a scene from Betty's recent trip to New Mexico.

Oh sweet! Good girlfriends are the key to a long and happy life. So nice that you both enjoy the arts.

Your friend is similar to mine. The art is what draws us together. Some great art here.

Nothing beats having a friend with shared interests. I love going out with those friends. We have so much fun because we enjoy the same things.

What great fun you too seem to have together, sharing art and the world. Thanks for a warm and enjoyable post.

Life is so much better with a friend who enjoys the same activities, isn't it? Art seems to be a strong bond. Lovely art it is, too.

How fun to have a friend to share your interests. I'll bet you inspire each other immensely.
