Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center, Georgetown, SC.  7/2008

“In the fall of 2009 I flew in a 172 aircraft with an instructor and photographed from Georgetown to Cape Fear.  the water was emerald green and fires were burning everywhere, but it was a clear day.  This commission is a combination of four photographs looking from the Atlantic Ocean across the North Inlet, with Debidue Beach on the right in the foreground.  The silk is heavy herringbone twill and I tried to show the expanse of the Barony with variations of the landscape from coast to marsh and forest.  I have flown this area many times and cherish this historic Low-country site.”
