We were in Savannah in 2002 attending the American Folk Art Society Conference, It was hotter than–hot! Arleney was napping in the motel so I decided to go cool off in a bar. I walked a ways and went into this little bar. There was this unforgettably barmaid. I swore if I could paint I’d try to paint her image . Well now, years later I am doing just that. Arleney took one look and told me “You are not going to post that!” So I just don’t know how I am going to get away with it. It is risqué but I obviously will have to deal with it. It is truly like her–wish I could remember her name—perhaps I will call the painting “One drink didn’t work, perhaps two”.— We loved Savannah!–olRoff————-Please note: When I was painting this I was thinking the year was in the late 1990. I later  learned it was 2002
