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.
i see a continuity…i have seen two others (of yours) like it in style: are you doing a series? i like them! the last one made me feel as if i was going “toward the light” a subject on my mind of late…also is it my imagination or is your palette getting lighter? of course yesterday WAS the first day of Spring!
Dear Michael! Yes, I believe I am settling into my favorite of themes: the hope for llight at the end of the road ( the tunnel), and the path thru the metaphor of the primordial forest. The signature feature of the South and especially of this area are the tree tunnels. I really appreciate your comments. Charlotte
