Salt Water Pines

“And every year there is a brief, startling moment 

When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and 

Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless 

Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air: 

It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies; 

It is the changing light of fall falling on us.” 

― Edward Hirsch

There is something magical about the light this time of year.  It is bluer, and more golden, sparkly and clear.  Shadows feel cooler. The landscape lights up as if it is drawing itself up for one last performance.  There is nothing that smells more like fall here on the coast,  than a salt scented breeze weaving its way around pine trees.

I am a landscape painter living and painting on the Georgia coast. Painting and writing is a way to reach out and share my observations, my experiences and my inspirations with you. It is how I tell my story and the story of the wild, beautiful landscape where I live.
