Painting With Old & New Friends!

Mary Edna, Karen Weihs and me painting on Sullivan's last Thursday.  Not pictured are Judy Fuller and Jane Smithers who are such incredible artists and lovely women who make me laugh!  Such fun!

"Through the Gate" SOLD

6"x6" Oil on Gessobord brand panel

It was a grey day last Thursday when I was invited by a dear friend, Karen Weihs, to join some new friends to paint on Sullivan's Island.  Fun!

"Home Team BBQ" SOLD

11"x14" Oil on Gessobord brand panel   sold

Another one for November's theme: "Text In Art" for The Charleston artist Collective.  I've wanted to paint this for a couple of years now. . . "Text in Art" gave me a great excuse to do it!

"Hilltop View" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Gessobord brand panel   Sold

Today, Anne and I spent our Wednesday painting at the top of the mound behind the Fire Department on Sullivan's Island.  The Sullivan's Island Lighthouse which you see in the distance in my painting is located all the way on the opposite side of the island!  the views are spectacular since you are up so high.  So unlike the "Lowcountry!"

"Kiss Hug"

12"x16" Oil on Gessobord brand panel

Can I be any more literal than this for November's "Text In Art" theme??  But to know me is to know I love hugs and kisses from my family and friends!

"Welcome To Sullivan's Island"

"Text in Art" exercise for November's Theme at the Charleston Artist Collective

"Warning Sign"

9"x12" Oil on Gessobord brand panel

It was a cloudy, overcast day last Wednesday when we met at Fort Moultrie to paint.  "Text In Art" is the Theme for The Charleston Artist Collective in November.  A challenge, no doubt, for me.
