"Calm At The Docks"

11"x14" Oil on Canvas  nfs charitable donation

This painting started out as a plein air painting on location at Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, SC.  However, it was so incredibly cold that it made my fingers numb.  I painted as much information as I could, and it was nearly finished, when I could no longer move my hands and hold a paint brush.  I just finished it up in the studio.  I want to go back there and try another one. . . the day I was here, at Shem Creek, it was so beautiful!  The lavender and warm yellow colors of the sky show that there were indeed frozen crystals in the atmosphere . . . all from that freezing cold air!
