The past few weeks, our marsh in South Carolina's LowCountry has displayed a magnificent range of colors. The early setting sun casts beautiful shadows, while the warm golds and reds of the marsh have been amazing. Just like any sunset, the beautiful rich colors last only a few moments.
I've been reevaluating my goals lately, and have decided to spend more time working on larger pieces. This decision hasn't been easy, but I feel that it's what I need to do in order to move forward. I need to challenge myself. I'll continue to post my work, both large paintings and small studies, but it may not be as often. To my followers, thank you for all the comments you leave. I truly appreciate the support of all my artist friends, as well as collectors, and hope that you will continue to follow my work.
In other news, I visited with fellow artist and blogger, Carol Carmichael, who participated in Savannah's 19th Annual Telfair Art Fair. For those of you who are familiar with Carol, you know she paints the most amazing cows, among many other things! I'm glad to have shown up at the right time, because she sold two very large cow "portraits" within minutes. Her work is even more amazing in person! Things were so busy, there wasn't time for pictures. Carol and I met at a Karin Jurick workshop three years ago, and I have admired her ever since. She is extremely talented, but very humble and kind. She has been a role model to many other artists. I'm proud to know her. So, if you don't know Carol, check out her work here.
