I was called to be an artist. And as an old old midwife said to me "If the Lord wants you to do something, you won't have no good luck' til you do." So, here I am, sharing what I love, longing to illuminate the work of art, which is everywhere.
Welcome to my blog about the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a place proud with beauty, history and art. Sometimes we feel a call, to be, to go, to do. I was called to be an artist, and as an old midwife from Alabama said, “If the good Lord wants you to do something, you won’t have no good luck until you do it.”
So here I am writing about what I know, about the 'under glimmer' as the poet Basho, says, the way I have learned to see, to notice. I am inspired by, and talking about the history and art and culture of this place that has called me to herself. By the ancestors.
My background includes a degree in fine arts from a small private college in Florida, and before that, four years of all girls' boarding school in Asheville. I worked as a professional photographer, helped my children grow up, and now and I love seasoned things, good food, better conversation, beauty, my beloved and beautiful Italian Greyhound, Beau. Moved by the sacred places and stories of this beautiful historic land called the Lowcountry, I am here in spirit and I hope to infect you with my love of this place.
Absolutely beautiful! This is one of the things I love about the Low Country is the views of cloud formations. I hope to do some plein air paintings of some next time I’m at Edisto!
Roy! This BEGS to be a painting doesn’t it? Fantastic clouds make me screech to a stop in the Lowcountry:) Thanks for the comment!
I noticed that you like Rumi whose name is Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi. I would like to inform you that a Sufi group (Whirling Dervishes) are coming from Turkey and they will perform at the Charleston Music Hall on March 13th, 2013.
Hello! Wow, thank you for telling me this. What an awesome event! I would love to be there.
