Cedar Keys, Florida

My husband David and I like to go to Florida in early April and visit family, go hiking, birding and painting! Our second time staying at Cedar Keys for 4 days, and I am already planning on going back next April. We had perfect weather and a wonderful trip. We would get up, have coffee and go out early, he would bird, and I would paint . . . so this is 7:30 AM looking out from the cemetery park. Then we go back and have a big breakfast! I will post more paintings soon from this trip.

Ernest F. Hollings ACE Basin, SC

This site for a National Wildlife Refuge headquarters in Edisto, SC is amazing. Even though there was this plantation house I could have painted instead, I liked this smaller structure that might have been the kitchen. If I had turned around, this is what I saw . . . perhaps sometime I will try to paint it too.
When I arrived, there where two ladies set up who where painting, yes, I just jumped in too, while David hiked around.
I did 13 little paintings on the Florida and South Carolina trip, will post them soon. Above painting is 8" x 10" oil on board, framed, $150
