"St. Philip's"

4 x 12"
oil on masonite
sold

The St. Philip's Church, in Charleston, is a thing of beauty, resembling a tiered wedding cake reaching into the sky. Established in 1680, there's incredible history to this building - surviving through 300+ years and several hurricanes and tornados.

This is taken from an early evening stroll, with the warm, summer sun bathing onto the earthy brick.

Your work is fantastic! I've never painted on masonite. Do you prepare it in some way first?

Beautiful! Are all of these paintings your original work? If so how do you manage to do so many?

What a majestic piece. Even though it's on the smaller scale it has the feeling, power and impact of a large painting.

ooh love this! I was there about 25 years ago, we lived in SC for a while, and loved taking trips down to Charleston, such a beautiful place! Your art is always inspiring!
