More Pc.s for the Show

These will be heading to my show at City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC next week. the date of the opening reception will be Wed. May 12th from 6-8. if youre in the area stop by and say hello!

Inner Banks Beauty-9x12
this was done on a painting trip a few weeks ago over in Oriental

Capt. Charlies by the Sea-8x10

A scene from the highest point on Bald Head Island looking down on the lightkeepers house

Coastal Rooflines-8x10

this is from Flora's Bluff on Bald Head Island. gotta love looking down on the ocean and the roofs of cottages!

on another note: i'll be teaching in Wilmington, NC the 21-23 of June. the cost is $300 and we'll be at Thalian Hall on that monday and the Arboretum on tuesday and wednesday. if you'd like to come drop me an email and i'll get you up with the sponsor (barbara). there's only two slots left so dont wait.

i have two pieces for sale at Outer Cape Auction (Provincetown, Mass.) this Saturday May 8th. bids start as low as $200 on a 12x16 and you can bid over the phone and theyre now offering a new live internet feed where you can watch the auction live and bid. if youre not on Cape Cod for the weekend, its almost like being there.

Rooney! Good work from BHI! Met one of your ladies, Lane(sp), at Carteret Contemporary yesterday. She said she loved the workshop. Told her we might paint some together this weekend. Been trying to pull the paintings from Charleston together and could use a break to get back out. Oriental pics look great!

jimmy- thanks man. i liked the one we did late in the afternoon in oriental.didnt like what i had out there so much but played with it in the studio. the show was delivered yesterday to city art, so i'm breathing that sigh of relief you have when its all done and you hand it over for them to sell. ready to paint with you again soon!
