Postcard From SSI

4x4 oil on Gesso Board
I've been on the lam on St Simon's Island, Georgia with a 'gaggle' of notorious painters who shall remain nameless unless they choose to reveal their identity and let y'all know who they are ;) 
Yes, you heard me say 'Y'all' and I 'might could' be using some other Southern slang after hanging around in Georgia 'on my mind'.
This tiny study which includes the causeway onto the Island is 4x4 inches and was done on Monday afternoon when the weather was rainy and overcast giving a misty violet grey light to the marsh.

Love this painting. We are just two hours from SSI. Hopefully you can stop by here and teach a class next Spring. Would love to meet you.

"might could" and "i'm fixing to" are my favorites :-)

It's really nice.
It's a small study, yet you have captured all the feelings of the location and the weather of the day!
