Wowie, zowie! This has been a crazy week. Here in South Carolina we’ve been inundated with record amounts of rain (13.5 inches at my house) resulting in flash floods, washed out roads, power and water outages and other miseries. It’s going to be a long slow process of emergency response, detours, clean up, and infrastructure rebuilding. I feel blessed to be in a suburb of Columbia that’s on higher ground. Having my studio at the back of the house allows me to work at home. We still have water and power, but many of our friends have not been so fortunate.
My featured painting this week is my second entry for the SC State Fair, one of my waterlily series. I hesitated to post it because it seems like we have had way too much water this week. However, I’m assuming the show will go on at the fair, and I hope our waters will soon return to the calm of a lily pond. Please join me in sending good thoughts and prayers to all who have been affected by the storm.
