I was recently honored as a featured artist in Arts on the Coast’s exhibition, “Connected to the Sea.” The proceeds from this special exhibit went to local nonprofits that focus on keeping our Georgia waterways and coast as clean and healthy as possible. My submission was an acrylic painting of the sunset over the Cuban coast. I worked from a photograph that I took on a recent cruise. The color of the water and sky in that moment was truly magical, and I hoped to do it justice in my painting of the scene. This painting was even featured in the Bryan County News, the local paper for Richmond Hill!
