I’ve lived from the mountains to the coast of South Carolina, but home to me is a little piece of dirt in the southwest corner of the Palmetto state.
I was a full time cattle farmer and still have a few pasture ornaments (cows, a goat and a donkey) to keep me company. I had a few other jobs along the way, but my kids grew up and I got tired of twelve-hour days.
Now I paint and travel. I keep my bags packed, including a sketch pad. I’m ready to leave on a moment’s notice as opportunities arise. Maybe a great deal to someplace I’ve never been. Or a friend who wants a travel buddy; or a place I want to see again; or just because I’m in the mood!
I discovered I am an abstract painter and attracted to lots of mediums. Lately I’m doing oils on big canvases, but water media are best for travel. I don’t know what I’ll be doing next next, except that it’ll still be art and travel!
