Got It All- 8x10
now at Down Creek Gallery on Ocracoke

contrary to popular belief i am not deceased. i dont often go this long without posting without indeed being dead but this was a crazy two weeks of painting for galleries in far flung places. after painting in less than ideal weather on the island of ocracoke i left for charleston to paint for my new gallery, Hamlet Gallery, on famed Broad St. on gallery row. i'm so excited to have a dealer in the Holy City (named that for its over two dozen steeples in just the downtown area) and ive nicknamed it Chucktown. beautiful city, and people.

ive painted down there since i started this fulltime gig and never had anywhere to sell the charleston stuff. i always sold it back in nc, or online tho' but its a very hard market to break into but i persisted and kept going back. then one of my students in key west suggested i contact Hamlet and the rest is history as they say. now i can paint down there knowing that it will stay in the area and always give me a reason to go back and paint chucktown again and again.

on the way i met the most beautiful people in georgetown sc and betsy havens and jim calk invited me to be their guest for a few days. they have a lovely home on front st. (right on the waterfront) and are wonderful artists also showing in charleston, at Sylvan Gallery. they are treasured friends now and i want to thank them for giving a gypsy artist a bed and a meal while he was pounding the pavement trying to make a living! thanks y'all.
