LIFE IS GOOD!

LUCKY ME!  LIFE IS GOOD!  I was awarded a South Carolina State Park Residency at Cheraw State Park.  In exchange, one of my paintings will be donated to the park.  Cheraw State Park is South Carolina's oldest park and largest park.  It is also home to the endangered cockcaded woodpecker.  Here are some pictures from the great trip.

Hi Dawn. The applications are available in October from Cheraw State Park. They have been growing the program for a few years now.
