Thinking about Edisto Island while painting “Water #2″

WATER PAINTING #2 (in progress) • 40" x 30"

Here's my inspiration. I took this photo when we went camping at Edisto Island, SC over Labor Day last September. I was determined that I needed to get down to the South Carolina coast to get some photos, but we didn't really have the money for the trip so we decided to CAMP in our tiny 2-man tent! (That is definitely not something we normally do, but it ended up being a fun weekend. There is a beautiful state park at Edisto that has great bike trails, including several of these board walks that take you can take to ride over the marshes.) It was so serene and relaxing at Edisto, that I would actually consider camping there again.

DAY ONE's progress.

DAY TWO: painting the trees...

painting the trees...

painting the trees...

still painting the trees...

painting the trees...

...done painting the trees! (for now)

Here are the trees from a distance (they look better that way.)

Once I finished the first coat on the trees, I moved onto the marsh grasses in the water. Before I knew it, an entire hour had passed while I painted black lines in the water. 🙂

  1. I think Tahd would really like it if you’d give me camping lessons. He wants to go this summer and I’m up for one night but I think he’d like to do 2 or 3.

    Pretty painting!

    • My only lesson is this: don’t plan it very far in advance so it’s too late to change your mind. 🙂 I think we may make it an annual tradition, but we would need to get a bigger tent. Three people in a 2-man tent was pretty crowded.

I miss your Mom, hope she gets back soon. Aunt Jeanne. P.S. Go camping it will be funn!!!! We just went to Door County, and stayed in a Hotel, was it boring. Camping is better.

      • Thanks for the tip Jeanne! I will take it to heart, as you and Rich are the camping experts it the family. Does your tent have a “screen porch” on it? I wondered if that would be good to have in case of rain.
