Upcoming Exhibition - Treasures of Our Coastal State

The National Association of Women Artists SC present their unique perspective of South Carolina from January 20 – February 28, 2021 at The Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island. This distinguished group of artists unveil our coastal state through their use of composition, texture and hue. Whether captured through the lens or created on canvas, these works embrace the diversity and beauty of the vistas and seas in which we live. Artwork will be on exhibit and available for purchase. I will be exhibiting the two pieces show below in this juried and curated show.

Falling Down Mt. Rainier

 This painting is now finished, and the final title is Falling Down Mt. Rainier. The complexity of the waterfall, numerous flowers, fields and mountains represent the feeling of being overwhelmed. Hiking through this valley, with Mt. Rainier above the tree line, made me feel very small and the space overtook me. This is the feeling I looked to accomplish as Mt. Rainier fell over me.
