|'Kiawah Sunrise' 8x10 plein air pastel $145|
We decided to give our little group a name and we chose the 'VIPS' which stands for 'Vanishing Image Painters'. Our goal is to travel and capture the landscape before it is developed and the beauty destroyed. The funny thing is we rarely paint when we travel. Oh we bring all of our supplies with us but we spend most of our time taking pictures or just sitting and soaking it all in. This time thought I am am bringing my oils and I am determined to get some painting done!
We are visiting St Simons Island off the Georgia Coast. We are staying in a little cottage on the marsh and a few blocks from the beach. Since we will not have internet access I will be taking another technology break. I have prepared posts for while I am away. These posts will be travelogues of some of the beautiful places the VIPS have traveled to. I hope you will continue to visit the blog and enjoy these places with me. I'll be home next Sunday.
Today's beautiful place is Kiawah Island, South Carolina. We went to Kiawah a couple of year's ago to attend a wonderful workshop with Stan Sperlak. The painting above was done on the deck of the house we stayed at. Kiawah is a private island which is groomed and developed but with careful attention to leaving it look natural and pristine It is full of wildlife. If you ever have the chance to visit I highly recommend it!
