Island Sunset

'Island Sunset' pastel 12x12
I still remember this sunset like it was yesterday. It was one of the last evenings of our stay on Creighton Island. I was a part of a group of artists visiting this private island off the Georgia coast to paint. This particular evening we had been invited to the owner's home on the other side of the island. We had a wonderful Low Country boil dinner and the most amazing sunset! The perfect ending to a great adventure.
In other news, I have now posted my Fall workshop schedule on my workshop blog. Have a look if you think you might like to attend a workshop.
