Marsh from the BridgeI am heading across the bridge this morning to go to Beaufort to have brunch with a friend.  I took photo a few days ago when I rode across on the bicycle.  I love driving the back roads to see different things so of course, I will have camera in hand.  This view is certainly one I will be painting soon.

Horses at HHI 1 Horses at HHI 2We enjoyed a relaxing day yesterday biking around and stopping to see some amazing art. These horse sculptures just stand out in an open space by the marsh. I couldn’t find anything nearby who said who created them so I Googled it when I got back to the house.  Here is what I found:

“These unique horse sculptures are a part of Hilton Head Island’s growing art collection.  May 1st they were placed on a parcel of town-owned property beside William Hilton Head Parkway near mid-island.  The sculptures are by Jonathan Bowling of Greenville, NC and are made from repurposed steel. Previously they were on display at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn on the north end of the island.”

I have been wanting to learn to weld so this makes me want to even more!

Spring is in the air?

The azaleas are confused about the time of the year here in Hilton Head.  They must think it’s April already because the weather sure seems that way.  A nice mid-60’s yesterday allowed me to bike around and take some photos.

I love riding the bike around and taking reference photos for paintings.  Not that I don’t already have tons of them, but you never know what you might get that you just have to put on canvas.

I am going to have to get my photo editing program loaded on this computer though so I can make these a little easier to see.  It was late in the afternoon with not much light….but still some really nice sights!
