Racing clouds cast strong patterns of light and shadows across both Spanish Hammock and the distant marsh on Tybee Island. But it was the clouds themselves I found most fascinating that day.

All that big movement that comes in the sky just before a storm blows in.

The only thing more fascinating to watch than a storm brewing over the marsh is one over the ocean.

I painted this first in the summer of 2020, but there was something that kept bugging me.

Being back in that same spot this summer during a flood tide helped me “fix” it, to get the feeling of land caught between water and sky.

Join me on my daily painting journey and get sneak peeks (~ 3x/ week) and special VIP previews of the new collections when they're released!
