We’ve got some big plans brewing here at the studio!

I recently asked for suggestions on where to paint within an hour’s drive of Columbia, SC where I’m based. I got so many great suggestions! Many thanks to everyone who responded!!

Ideas exploded out of a brainstorming session I had with my team about painting on locations suggested by all of you.

We’re not quite ready to release all our plans yet, but to give you a hint, think live broadcasts and on location painting.

We want to give everyone who’s following the studio a chance to be a part of what we’re doing so there’ll be a regular giveaway around picking and/or sharing the weekly location.

So I need some feedback and help.

What would you like to see offered in the giveaway? What would make your day and be absolutely delightful?

To share your ideas and feedback, just leave your suggestions in the comments below!

Many Thanks Y’all!!

The tall loblolly pines in the picnic area at Congaree National Park cast long patterns of shadows across a deep carpet of pine needles. I painted this same spot back in January when the only things in the forest with leaves were the pines and hollies. It’s as if someone dropped a curtain on the distant trees.
