My goal was to do something different… this ought to about do it. This is my favorite spot in Charleston. It’s right outside Smith Killian Fine Art gallery, which is a place I could spend most of my time. The main artists are Betty Anglin Smith (mother) and her 2 daughters, Shannon & Jennifer and a son, Trip who does photography. Triplets actually. I can get lost in their work.

My trip to Mackinac was a huge success. I delivered 13 paintings to Lilacs & Lace and I’m ready for summer to begin! It’s under new ownership and I’m happy to be working with Barb & Kathy this year. It was a whirlwind trip… I usually mix business with pleasure and stay for several days, but the schedule just didn’t permit this year. My husband had a tooth pulled the day before so he was in a good bit of pain and discomfort the whole time. We did manage to get in a movie (Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp) which was great… except for the scary parts. It’s a comedy I know… I can’t force myself to look at the scary parts. Never have been able to… I prefer to spend time admiring my lap. To each his own.
My next painting will be of Velvet’s Fudge Shop. I just started it (the easiest part and the most important). It’s roughed in and I’m ready to commit some serious paint… Feed your passions!
