Marina from Bay St.-9x12

if you like this one contact me or Tidewater Gallery for price and availability


Was on my second full day of driving back home from florida, going up 95 n. from Savannah this morning and thought i'd like to drive east about 45 minutes to Beaufort SC and paint on Bay St. Its absolutely beautiful there with tons of boats and great old houses ala savannah or charleston. here's what i ended up with. i'm back in NC tonite, already missing the keys.

Another beautiful painting. You can really capture the light. The reflections in the water are also nice.

thanks linda. water's one of my fave things to paint. it can change the way it looks ten times in a painting session. the wind blowing and clouds going by overhead, is what changes it.

Glad you had a safe trip home, Mike. I'm already daydreaming about going back next year...what a cool place.

70 here today as well, but I couldn't find turquoise water or palm trees anywhere.
They should'a jumped early when they had first shot-maybe they can make a decision before next spring LOL.
