Coastal Repast!


Hi everybody.

This was my watercolor on watercolor paper 20" x 30" for the magazine Water's Edge of a low country boil.

Actually the piece was about crawfish. I chose to make it about the low country boil.

The reason for that choice was to celebrate a friendship and a discovery. I had a neighbor who grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. He came over to my porch one day and said, " My family is celebrating my birthday out in Fort Caroline. Our family home is right on the river. I'd like you to come out and enjoy yourself." "Done." I said without missing a beat. This is similar to the feast we shared. It was a grand day. I became a fan of this delicious traditional southern dish.

Thank you for looking at my art today. You can view more coastal art at
