This painting is my way of coming home as an artist, after an exotic and emotional artistic and spiritual journey to Haiti. Nothing says home like the Folly Beach Pier. The beach is always changing and full of surprises, all year round.
It was made from a series of photos I took on Thanksgiving day, celebrating the awe of nature with my wife, Cate. It was late afternoon with a gentle breeze coming off the shore. Nothing says romantic Thanksgiving like sushi on the beach. The surf was tumultuous and fierce but the experience of being in its midst with the love of my life was comforting and serene. Celebrate this wonderful part of the world with this iconic painting of pure Charleston.
