In May, I visited some friends in Charleston, South Carolina and I painted this from one of the hundreds of photos I took while I was there. Of course, in the photo, the sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful blue. We went to a plantation which had really beautiful grounds and this was one of the views. The day before, there was a tropical storm watch and a threat of a hurricane - all very exciting/scary so this is my artistic combination of the nice view and the stormy weather. I think I will also paint the scene with the sun shining, as it is in the photo, later this week.
Charleston is such a beautiful city with such charming people. I really had a wonderful time and I look forward to painting more of the local scenes and visiting there again some day.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
