Sanderling Study

Watching the flocks of Sanderling's chase receding waves, and then, to only run away from them when they return, has a mesmerizing effect on me. This is a little shore bird study, along with his shadow on the sand, reminds me of the warmth of the sun, the sea air, and how calming it is to watch nature at play.

Mugshot # 6 - Sherrie "the Kid" Hilliard

Sherrie "the Kid" Hilliard is well known for her beautiful, romanticized paintings of children. But don't let that fool you, as she specializes in snapping photo's of children, and then, going into hiding for months to paint, paint, paint.

Be on your guard, as it has been rumored that she is due to resurface next month, possibly in the vicinity of Hilton Head.

Clementine "Cuties"

I remember these little treasures of sweetness traveling within my lifetime of Christmas memories spent with family and friends. Safe and Happy Holiday season to all.

See my submission of this painting at for "The Holiday Cheer Challenge".

HH Mugshot #5 - Kelley MacDonald

Hmmm... Kelley "MacGrins" MacDonald had me fooled. She had my back in the workshop, literally, she sat right behind me. I was so fooled by her smile, warm stories about painting, and how she managed to drive through snow, sleet and rain for days to attend the workshop. She may be notorious in Hilton Head for shooting at will, but her mantra is spot on, "Girls Just Wanna Paint".

Not just Jenny from the Block..Mugshot #4

Jennifer "JLo" Koach is not just Jenny from the block, that's for sure. Beauty, brains, and an entourage that would make "that other Jen from the block" shiver with envy. You go girl!

My Charleston Girls

"My Charleston Girls" represents a hope I have for my daughter to realize her dream of living in Charleston, SC, shopping for shoes, wearing her skinny jeans and heels, with her future best friend at her side.
