Wooden Boat Show in Georgetown SC 10 '11

 Wooden Boat Show held third weekend in Oct  is one of the nation's premier wooden boat exhibits. These activities all take place on the waterfront and in Historic Downtown Georgetown. Some of my most popular paintings have come from reference photos I have taken at this event in previous years.
