Broad Street Geranium…


This geranium sits in an office window on Broad Street. It is beautiful year after year… wonder if it’s the same one? Look at that wonderful light! As I write this we are in the midst of an “arctic blast” of cold weather. My fingers feel like they are about to crack… some of this sun would feel mighty nice right now! As you read this I believe our temps are supposed to warm up quite nicely! Woohoo, gotta love Charleston, SC!

Have a great day…

A walk down Broad Street…

I like the funky blue’s in this photo… this was taken last Friday during the art walk… it was an amazing night for it. I think the prediction of rain kept some people home. There was still a good crowd and it only drizzled right at the very end.  This photo looks like it would make a great painting… those clouds, the car lights, the steeple… nice! Have a great weekend!

Botany Bay (Edisto, SC)…

Just look at that cool line of fog/mist on the water, pretty amazing isn’t it? I captured this while we were moving… spectacular shot!

Well, almost a spectacular shot… the line of fog/mist turned out to be the window that was rolled down… darn it!

The stillness, reflections and just pure beauty of that place amazes me! This was taken at Botany Bay, a gorgeous place to visit if you ever get the chance, it’s located near Edisto, SC.

Another short post… back to normal on Friday!

Now this would make one heck of a rooftop painting!


San Francisco, CA… gotta love it!

This would make one heck of a challenging rooftop painting wouldn’t it? Whew, not sure I would want to give it a whirl, but I would enjoy seeing the progression of an artist painting a similar scene. It facinates me how there really is no right or wrong way to paint. I see people break the “rules” all the time and they’re awesome artists… what works for one doesn’t always work for another… I like knowing I have options, ha ha…

Have a good weekend! Catch you back here tomorrow!

A “bouquet” of flowers in the most unexpected place… that’s Monhegan for ya!

Walking around Monhegan you run across the most unexpected beautiful sights… butterflies everywhere, gorgeous sunsets, happy flowers, the sea and a bouquet every now and then appearing in a spot you just wouldn’t think to see one. It puts a smile on my face every single time.

Charleston Photo: The perfect picnic spot…

Our lunch spot, Botany Bay

I have mentioned in past posts a fabulous place called Botany Bay. The light that filters through the trees is incredible. Every inch of that place is stunning. It appears untouched. The beach is beautiful, the entire area looks like you’ve stepped back in time. This is a photo of our lunch spot. We brought a picnic, opened up the back of the car and sat, ate, listened to the birds, the wind in the trees… wow… Let’s not tell too many people about this place, ok? Keep it to yourself!  Have a great weekend!

The beauty of history…

Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Charleston SC

There is a beautiful Catholic church in downtown Charleston, SC that I truly believe everyone should see. The church is  Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, founded in 1821. You can sense the history when you walk through the doors. Here in Charleston, SC we have many churches like this… gorgeous, big and beautiful!

My parents were here a few weeks ago, and we were having lunch downtown and on the way back to the car we walked through the very impressive doors. AMAZING. It’s hard to get a good shot with a phone camera, but here is a glimpse at one of the many windows. The architecture is breathtaking. A wonderful church for sure!

It’s the little things in life…

Butterfly on Monhegan

Monhegan Island, Maine is an island rich in history. There are so many beautiful sites to see, the ocean, cliffs, artists painting, birds, flowers, and of course… the butterflies… they seem to be everywhere!

Have a wonderful weekend, get out and enjoy the beauty all around you… notice the little things that make you smile. Be grateful for them… Life on earth is a short blip on the radar screen… savor it…

Prayers of peace go out to our Monhegan friend, Scott and to his family…

Catch you back here tomorrow!
