Hello from the low country of Colleton County

The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition finished last night.  In spite of three inches of snow in Charleston on Friday night, the show was well attended.  Snow is almost unheard of in this area - so it was a real novelty for the local kids. 

The highlight of my weekend was being invited to show at the Horton Hayes Fine Art Gallery, one of Charleston's finest galleries.   So if you missed SEWE, you can see my work at Horton Hayes, 30 State Street, Charleston, S.C. 

Now I'm at Ace Basin, which is where the Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto Rivers converge.  I'm here with artists Melanie Fain, Joe Garcia and Virginia Vaughan.

We're here to teach a workshop for South Carolina's Junior Duck Stamp Winners - and to spend a couple of days painting.  This area has been an inspiration for my work for many years.  There is a promise of rain for most of the today but the weather will clear tomorrow, in time for me to spend some time painting and to recharge my batteries.

In two weeks, Joe and I will be teaching a three-day oil/watercolor workshop at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona.  If you're interested in this workshop, there's information on the workshop section of my website,
