Across the Marsh to Charleston

Daily Practice
Journal

The is one of my favorite views of Charleston -- looking over that lush, rich marshland - spartina grasses golden in the early spring .... the jewel of South Carolina - Charleston - seen through live oak leaves ... yep - these say CHARLESTON to me like nothing else.

It's dash and run time for us as preparations are in full swing for the plant sale-a-bration this Saturday. Fingers are crossed for good weather and larger crowds. The greenhouse is organized, plant signs are being printed, the children's play area is being readied, and donations of additional plant materials are coming in.

So peaceful and lovely Lin. I like how you've "framed" the painting with the gorgeous tree. The marsh grass and water are superb.

A restful painting for one so "on the go" as you are this week.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Love this painting. I stumbled across you while looking through google images for the Tobacco Museum in Kenly.... Couldn't find your post on it. Anyway, you do lovely work.

Greetings from Charleston (alessa) and Raleigh (tammie)
