Winter in the swamp is one of my favorite times of year, and it really doesn’t have that much to do with the lack of mosquitoes, although that’s a definite plus.

With the leaves off of most of the trees, the entire color system changes from the Oz-like green of midsummer to gentler one of tans, greys, purples and blues interspersed with shots of warm color.

For the next several months I’m serving as the artist-in-residence at the Congaree National Park. Follow along as I explore the park in more detail, paint plein air as often as I can, and work on developing a new mural for the Visitors Center.

Happy New Year! And thank you so much for being part of my artistic journey!!
