I'm still on the island of Ocracoke, home for a while to the infamous pirate Blackbeard. He used to hide out here and strike out at ships robbing them blind. now they do it legally in the restaurants and motels. it's very expensive to stay here even in the off season. so i'm trying to paint four a day to keep the price per painting down. i'll use any excuse to paint alot wont i.

One of the many roads that lead to the sound. i left the house out that was to the left of this one. this is what it looked like hundreds of years ago before folks inhabited the island. Love the early light on this one. pinks and subdued shades of lavender everywhere.
Saw this while scouting down dead-end roads that front the water. how cool is that view! i left the tiedown off it for artistic reasons but it had a strap attached to anchors sunk in the ground. the owner told me they kept it from floating away like it did the last time the area flooded. too funny!
