"Beaufort, Baby!"

In October I was the guest and featured artist of the Fall Fundraising Party of the Beaufort Historical Association. The first gathering was a Thursday evening, private opening at the Mattie King Davis Art Gallery on the historic site.

The second event was Saturday night at the home of Doug and Carolyn Brady on Front Street in Beaufort. At both gatherings, sponsors of this year's event viewed and purchased several of my paintings. According to Patricia Suggs and Ann Sloan, the event was a success! I was honored to participate in such a classy and grandiose event.

Yet when I wasn't dressed up and hobnobbing with the hobnobbers, I was dressed down and having fun with my little darlings, Erica and Ethan. From our accommodations, graciously provided by the BHA, we could look out onto the Beaufort waterfront. The view was magnificent!

The true magic moment was when we shared the joy of viewing dolphins porpoising through the water outside our balcony window. It's times like these that I feel like a successful gentleman artist in a pair of sunglasses and the proud father of precious children.

I love my job, Eric McRay

To love an artist's work is one thing, but to love his attitude and personality is another. The fact that you say you "love your job" is inspiring and exciting. Thanks for sharing that!
