A Street In Charleston

      This scene is from one of my photos I took when I was in Charleston.  Sorry I don't know the street's name since I believe this was from the car window as we were driving through.  In the background you can see St.Philip's Episcopal Church, which is one of the oldest in this city.   I painted this for Workshop 23 
on the Complete Artist Site.   This workshop dealt with painting street scenes.  Thanks everyone for viewing.

Seascape #1

 I had an older painting that I was not crazy about, so I put it back up on the easel and reworked it.  I completely changed the  whole painting starting with the sky, the water and the sand.  I have been taking photos of the waves and watching them when at the shore.  So with this knowledge I painted this picture and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I hope this lets all of you have the feeling of a day at the beach and how enjoyable it is.   Thanks for viewing  and please comment.
