As you leave Charleston, South Carolina and head for the barrier islands, you will
cross Shem Creek. Commercial fishing and shrimp boats hug the waters edge. At high tide the brilliant yellow marsh grasses
are flooded with salt water. I was granted permission by the local fishermen to paint on the docks near their boats. As I
drew in my paintings of their boats, the captains shared stories about their years of experiences, fishing and shrimping.
My family lived near the Charleston Battery after I was born. There are many beautiful homes
clustered together facing the ocean in that area. Pastel colors enhance the architectural details. Horse drawn carriage tour
guides highlight the significance of the historic homes. Click on any of the paintings to
