Here is a garden scene that I put together from photos I took while visiting Charleston, South Carolina. I hope the painting will remind the viewer of the amazing beauty of peacocks, and of southern gardens dripping with Spanish moss, and all of it gloriously alive.
Here's a tribute to Bruce Ruark who passed from us on March 17th. He was an accomplished artist, and a good friend. I painted this of him some years ago from a photo I took while on a paint out at Bent Creek Vineyards. He painted large plein air watercolors with confidence as no one else I know can do.
