Little Saint Simons Island II

2015

Lodge at Little St. Simons Island

St. Simons Island, Georgia

This is part two of a body of work begun in 2011 when I was invited to paint the landscapes of Little St. Simons Island. Part one was exhibited on the island in 2012, and many of the paintings have remained there, hanging in the lodge and guest rooms. When combined, these two group, plus a few paintings not shown here, create a portrait of one of the best preserved barrier islands on the southeast coast. They will be presented together in 2016 in an exhibit that will open at the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia. There will be an accompanying exhibit book from the University of Georgia Press to provide context to the artwork along with the history and nature of the island.
