"Foggy Charleston Morning"

12"x9" Oil on Linen Panel Painted En Plein Air atop the Majestic Square parking garage looking down Archdale Street toward one of Charleston's many historic churches; The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

"Still Life Demo with Vase and Pumpkin"

14"x11" oil on Linen Panel

Last month, in October, I was invited to be the guest speaker and demonstrate a Still Life Painting for the Seabrook Island Artists Guild.  This is the painting I painted as I spoke before a most gracious and hospitable group of artists.  The experience was lovely as I was hosted by Robert and Donna LeFevre.  Thanks to all at the Seabrook Island Artist Guild!

Mother Emanuel Art Auction Fundraiser Begins!

It was a very rainy, dreary day but we all arrived to begin the set-up process of decking-out the Cigar Factory on East Bay Street in Downtown Charleston.  This transformation is turning this unused warehouse-like space into a rustic Urban-Chic Art Gallery in which to host Art Collectors, Musician & Choir Singers, and Artists alike.

 This is the wall containing the 8"x8" originals for sale. 

 Every wall is covered with gorgeous art originals by Charleston's Finest Artists!

This is only the beginning and it is already looking Chi-chic!

 You must see this to believe it!  It's beautiful!

 Everyone is working diligently to get all the artwork up and seen!

 It is almost sad to think that this event will end and all this glorious art will go from this space. . . 
We may have to form another Art Event in this location soon!
