Au Coeur Academy

“My passion for painting is rooted in my garden” is a quote from Kathy Anderson, avid gardener and accomplished artist. It was a privilege to paint with Kathy (and others) at Middleton Place in Charleston this spring at the first annual Au Coeur Academy, Her generosity while teaching was exceeded only by her energy and passion for capturing beauty on the canvas. This was absolutely one of the most enjoyable weeks of painting I have experienced in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable. Sharing this time with so many talented artists will remain a high point in my painterly life.

Oh, let me introduce you to three friends I met while there. You can see them in the upper right of this photo. I trust they approve, especially if my attempt at imitation is flattery.
