"Pitt Street Park"

10"x8" Oil on Linen Birch Board

It got quiet suddenly at The Old Pitt Street Bridge-turned-Park in the Old Village.  After a very bustling morning of joggers, new moms getting out to enjoy the day with babies, dog-walkers and all those wanting to enjoy today's gorgeous weather, I found this quiet perspective - and got a little sun-burned too.

"Honey Hole" SOLD

8"x10" Oil on Linen Birch Board   sold

The roots of this tree at low tide captured my eye. As the morning progressed, I later met the man behind me baiting for crabs and learned he already claimed this spot as his personal "honey hole" and was hoping to catch lunch for his visiting NY in-laws.  So, this is a tribute to him and his lovely crabbing spot.

"Marsh Reeds"

9"x12" Oil on Canvas

The brackish water rushed out to sea revealing the pinkish-gold path of dried marsh reeds.

"A Recent Afternoon" SOLD

8"x10" Oil on Linen Panel   Sold

Another lovely day in the Lowcountry. . . the conditions were perfect to be out painting!  The sun was warm, the breeze was light and cool and everything is in bloom or has bloomed. Even the bugs stayed away.  It was a great day.

"Beach Day" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Canvas   SOLD

I painted this en plein air this past Wednesday at Sullivan's Island Station 18.  The day was perfectly gorgeous!  Richard, my 4-year old son, joined me and he had a blast playing in the surf and saying "hi" to all the passing puppies.  This was our first beach day this spring. . . any suggestions for titles?
