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.
Lovely painting and a beautiful thought. We are thinking of you, Nina & Mike
Nina! Thank you and I am so happy to have a note and visit from you and Mike! Love to you both!
When it comes to color you have it!! therefore your talent is mixing colors that makes you want to stop and say “Just what am I looking at.” But I am a story teller and what I present must be something people can relate to. So you mix colors that make you want to stop and take another look while I tell stories that make people wan more. So mix up some more colors that will make people stop and look. Oh, My books are on Amazon.
Thank you, Sam! One of my thrills is finding the sizzle when the two right colors sit side by side:) OK I will mix up some more:) I am finally back in my studio after a year doing other necessary work. YAY! Take care of yourself, Sam.

You are the best, Michael!
