Dusk on Mt. Pleasant, SC

Dusk on Mt. Pleasant, SC I and II
oil, 8x10
I saw these two landscapes when my sister moved to her new house. This is just down the road from her. I keep watching that spot, but nothing has been as pretty as the first time I saw it. Funny how it works like that!

State of the Palmetto

Small Palmettos are 5x7 oil on board

When preparing to show in Charleston, SC, I always do some small palmetto trees. We are, after all, the palmetto state! It's fun playing with this great shape with lots of different color combinations.
