Where I stayed
"Seaworthy" was another attempt at depicting an old guy, which seems to be a recurring theme. This one was done in Ocean City, while still dreaming of that rockfish slaughter we were going to have. Turns out my brother slaughtered about 8 forty pounders three days after we left.
"The Conductor" is Dennis Zeisler, our pride of the podium. I asked Carol for an idea, and we actually got this picture from another friend. This one could be titled 'study in Payne's gray'. Carol wanted to surprise Dennis, we sent it a week ago. Hope we didn't wreck it.
Sister Lisa [not a nun] wanted a sunset, something that I don't think I've ever tried. Another opportunity to play with some bold colors and broad strokes.
"Scout" is one of the Charlotte rescue dogs, painted for Laura. I actually really enjoy painting dogs, maybe because I like them so much. Scout is a pretty laid back guy, and in reality looks a little older than 8 yrs old. Might have something to do with his roommates.
" Butler's back yard " was an attempt to do something with a little of the Charleston 'style' after visiting some of the galleries there. Seems the farther south, the brighter and bolder the colors in the art. Must have something to do with the heat or the food or the tequila.
I don't quite know what inspired the "hopeless romantic" effort, other than I wanted to stay with the Charleston influence and try something totally different. The subjects are from a tiny photo in a travel mag. Unbelievably, after roughing it in the first day, Mary immediately recognized the scene from one of her favorite movies. Obviuosly a chick fltck.
