It is with deep regret that I report the loss of friend and author Marty Godbey in December. The pen and ink was one of hundreds of illustrations I did for her books in the late 80s and early 90s. (McClanahan) Her talents crossed many areas, from architecture, history, food, and along with husband, Frank, a love of bluegrass music. McClanahan published a series of dining guides carefully researched and beautifully written by Marty for several states and overall for the South.The illustration depicts Scarlett O'haras in St. Augustine, Florida.
