Portrait Studies

Got one child to sit still for a few minutes - guess which one wouldn't sit still. Faces are one of my bigger problem areas - they are so easy to miss the mark with - I'm getting closer though.

Got C. to sit still enough for a short time (while I quizzed her for a test).

Valentines Day Workshop

Carol and the kids worked on Valentine's Day crafts for school. They made little Ipods out of boxes of Conversation Hearts with two Rolos and string as the headphones. Lucky for the kids Carol is the crafty one with the good ideas - I would have just gotten the cheapo box of cards and called it a day...

Charleston Harbor

Beautiful weather; the high was around 70 degrees and lots of sun. This view is of a home on Charleston Harbor in Mount Pleasant - downtown Charleston in the background. I ran out of time to complete the dock that connects to the property but I've drawn it recently here.

Magnolia Cemetery, Green Hill Section

This one is from the Green Hill section of Magnolia Cemetery. I did this one the same day as yesterdays post. It was getting near 5:00 and the shadows were starting to get long. I soon came to the realization that trees with leaves are a heck of a lot easier to paint than trees without leaves.

Magnolia Cemetery, Palm Trunk and Marsh

A view of a palm tree trunk from the Green Hill section of Magnolia Cemetery. This area has newer plots and is reached by crossing over a small built up dirt bridge across a marshy area. I was able to hang out undisturbed for a couple of hours and never saw a soul.
