The Member Art Gallery

Raelee Edgar, co-owner of Bali Hai IV, GLGBA member and Professional Artist wrote the following: (and sent us a painting for her boat)
Ron and I really enjoyed our time at the Rendezvous! It was great meeting you and your wife. It was nice to be able to attach names to faces! What a lovely group of people!! Also, thank you for letting us tour your 49’… a beautiful boat too. It is so interesting to see the different layouts and how people have provisioned their boats. Fortunately, Bali Ha’i 4 was in FL for some work this summer and not back at Marsh Harbor Boatyard where we usually keep her. We are just heartbroken for the Bahamas. We know so many people there who are definitely in our prayers!! This photo was taken off of Manjack Cay. I’m enclosing the picture just for reference. The painting is oil on canvas 24x12” I work on commission and price by size/complexity. If you want to include it on the GBGLA page, I’d be honored. My website is Raelee Edgar's website
