Fresh work from Michel McNinch

I went to a friend's house to see if she was home.  She wasn't, but this was there waiting on me.  Ahh.  Divine beauty is everywhere.

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.


Life is Good!

Wisteria was everywhere.
