"GREAT BLUE" At last I am finally painting! "Great Blue"Â (oil on canvas) has been a long time in the making. The piece below is the initial painting. I love the blues in that piece but I was more interested in achieving a more natural look. I've done few landscapes,...
I’m posting birds probably because it’s spring, and we’re moving, and I’m decidedly feeling the nesting urge. Our house has sold, but we’re not clear where we’re headed yet, except we know we’re staying in Charleston.

I’m hoping this blog will, perhaps, cause you to feel the nesting urge, and bring one of these paintings into your home.

I painted this somewhat abstract painting, "Cautious" in response to seeing a photo of my aunt (taken somewhere around the mid-1930s)Â hiding in the back of a room peopledÂ with mostlyÂ old women wearing assorted hats and solid shoes - perhaps, a gardenÂ club...
