Last night Blues Musicians gathered at Black & Blue in Easton, Pennsylvania.  The Todd Wolfe / Rob Fraser Blues Jam lives on!

Scott Bones Ward and Bill DeHart

The first night at a new venue is always a bit shaky.  Fortunately, there’s a wide ledge for the paintings to dry on (somewhat safely).  The tables are terribly small.  I might switch to working in a large sketchbook instead of dip pen and tube watercolors.

Less than twenty blocks away from Larry Holmes Ringside Restaurant, it is a different crowd.  I like variety and new inspiration.  I also like the healthier food and better ales.  I don’t, however, like the higher prices.  There is a trade off in every choice.

It was a great night.  Four lovely ladies crammed around a tiny, round table, laughing and enjoying the music.  What could be better?
