This is the Darien Waterfront which I found absolutely delightful! It was drizzling rain most of the day, but the painting was very fun! To the left of where I was standing to paint this, was a very large, very dead alligator which when the wind blew just right gave me a not too pleasant aroma, but neither rain, nor sleet, or dead alligators could stop me! The DNR came later and collected him for a proper burial.. See ya later, Alligator

Here is my beautiful Fort Frederica! I call it mine because I love to go there and walk and imagine that I am back in the 1700's when it was the town of Frederica. I try to imagine all the sounds of sawing, hammering and nailing, voices of children and the townspeople shouting to one another.. It is a quiet, very beautiful place on the river but a strategic point of history for our state.. It is a treasure.. 11x14 oil on panel $250.00 plus S&H
I was painting this old tabby slave cabin at Hamilton Plantation, currently known as Epworth by the Sea, when a very nice lady walked up to me and asked me if I would like to see the inside of the cabin. She was a member of the preservation committee for the historic site and was gracious to allow me to see inside. It was an amazing thing to see it. I painted this in spring when the breeze was blowing and azaleas blooming. The river is just behind the cabin.
Welcome to the old Taylors Fish Camp on St. Simons Island. This is where boats used to put in for fishing trips assisted by the Buchan family.. The Camp is closed down now due to the exchange of ownership from Sea Island Co. to another company. This dock was part of a John Voight movie called CONRACK which truly showed the beauty of our island! I am priviledged to have been able to go there and paint...

This was such a fun painting to do! Strothers Hardware and Dressners Restaurant have been a part of the Village for a long time! I love all the colorful stuff in the windows and I had a ball painting the cars.. Where I was painting was in a shady spot and many people stopped to take a peek and talk for a bit.. It was a lovely day in the Village.

One early morning, I was out walking on the beach of St. Simons Island and took this photograph from which I later painted this image. There's nothing quite like being at the beach early in the morning and listening to the waves crash upon the shore, hearing the cries of the seagulls and feeling the warm sun upon your face! I love where I live.....
Beautiful Driftwood beach is where I was the other day.. It was magnificent.. All these trees are bent and swayed because of the constant ocean breezes blowing against them.. I painted up on a sand dune under a big tree and loved every minute of it.. Painting outdoors restores my soul in every way.. I can't wait to go there again! This 12x12 wrap around painting is for sale for $150.00 plus S&H. Please send email if interested.
This old bait house at the end of the causeway, has caught my eye for a long time now.. And, my dear artist-friend Laurel, suggested we go paint it plein aire, which we did.. It was a lovely day and a lovely subject...however, shortly after we painted this, the place was fenced in and locked..So, we are so happy we got a chance to paint there! 8x10 canvas. $125.00 plus S&H.
