A ROMANTIC SOUTHERN STROLL


"Southern Stroll I"
10x10, oil on canvas


Last week we took our kiddos fishing off the local Greenway path which is right by our house. After untangling the mickey mouse push button pole and baiting it with some shrimp, Taj my 5 year old managed to pull up his first crab! He (the crab) fell off before we could pull it in but in the mind of a 5 year old it totally counts! On our walk back (fishless, crabless, and shrimpless) was this beautiful oak tree with the moon sitting pretty just above her. It was the perfect evening; an adventure for my children and a nice romantic walk with my man...awhhh.

Oak trees are incredibly challenging for me to paint so I think I will tackle this same composition a few more times.

Pluff Mud, Glorious Pluff Mud

When I first moved to Charleston 3 years ago the smell of the pluff mud was absolutely horrific to my scenes. I had come from the West growing up in the mountains literally in the pine trees of Montana. To me the smell of fresh air and pine trees was/ is heaven! The pluff mud was stagnant, heavy and much to organic for me. It smelled like compost fresh off the farm that you throw in your garden which is an acquired smell.  Now every time I come home from visiting Montana or wherever my travels may take me I step off the plane into that ohhhh so sweet smell of the pluff mud. Home Sweet Home is Charleston where the salty air mixes with jasmine and the slippery muddy waters of the marsh. Oh yeah and somewhere in there you can smell the fresh pralines moving thru the air from Market Street.
