Here I am, painting the St. Philips church from across the road from the gallery.
I'm back from beautiful Charleston.... but thankful to return to beautiful Glencoe, Alabama. I had a wonderful welcome home when I returned.... pink crepe paper streamers, a beautiful sign, a Diet Pepsi, and some chips and cheese dip from my favorite Mexican restaurant. I'm so thankful for my family. It was nice to be missed, because I surely missed them.
The weather was beautiful this time while I was in Charleston. Shelby Parbel, the gallery owner, took me around again and showed me more of the city, and I got some great photos to paint. I got to see some of my artist friends, Rick Reinert and Kevin LePrince, at Spoleto and I also got to meet Joan Perry of the blog "Charleston's Daily Photo" that has been allowing me to use her wonderful photos as references for some of my Charleston paintings. If you've never visited Charleston during the Spoleto Arts Festival, you're missing a huge treat. It's amazing. I had the opportunity to meet some great artists in person and see some of their work as well.
Here's a painting that I completed while I was there, it's another view of St Philips. I was standing just across the road from the gallery.
