Just before the road opens to the main house in Magnolia Plantation you'll see this large, grande Oak Tree.  The fence below it running across the canvas is about 3.5 feet high to offer you perspective on the tree's enormous size!

"Magnificence" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Linen mounted Birch Board Panel  SOLD

"Grandeur, Majesty, Stateliness, Nobleness, Glory, Radiance, Grace, Beauty, Style, Splendor," are just among some of the words synonymous with "Magnificence."  I thought that all of these words summed up this stately beauty.

"Red Barn" SOLD

8"x10" Oil on Linen Birch Board Panel   SOLD

Despite the chilly, damp 40-degree weather, the Wednesday painters showed up to paint the glorious beauty of CATR Farms Therapeutic Riding Stables on Johns Island.  What a joy to meet with the team of ladies who assist and work with children learning to break through their own disabilities riding the precious horses boarded here.

I look forward to coming back out to paint some more!  If you are in the area on April 27th, come out to Johns Island, 2669 Hamilton Road off of River Road, for their fun Fundraiser.  Food, Music and of course Horses!  The grounds are gorgeous and the horses are sweet!

"Hay Fields" SOLD

8"x10" Oil on Linen/Birch Board Panel   sold

Go ahead, say it.  I am being way too literal for the Charleston Artist Collective's Theme next month: "Fields."  But won't you agree that there is something about rolled up Hay Bales that makes for a gorgeous painting composition?

"Eating Out With a Friend" SOLD

I love these guys.  They live around the way from my neighborhood.  I pass by their farm as I head out and back from home and many times I'll stop and pat a nose or rub their necks.  They are the sweetest!
