"The Red Bridge"
Watercolor - 10.5"x14"

 My 2018 ART CALENDARS are COMING SOON!!

This coming year's Calendar will feature various Lowcountry scenes including new paintings created for the 2017 "Edisto and Beyond Tour, the Annual Tour of  Historic Plantations, Churches, Graveyards & Historic Sites" sponsored by the Edisto Island Historic Preservation Society.  The paintings will also be on exhibit at the Edisto Island Museum September 19 through December 31.

   I am honored to be the first artist of African descent to be selected as the featured artist for the tour.  The pieces created for the Tour were painted to honor my great-grandmother, Mollie Steward Manigault, who was born into slavery on Edisto Island in the 1850's. I tried to paint the tour sites as I think Mollie, a slave child, would have viewed them.

"Ode of Monday's Anna"


Our favorite Yoga teacher, Anna, is leaving our studio to travel... Frank wrote a poem and I painted a caricature piece of the older folks in our class for a farewell card for her. (That's me and Frank on the left edge.)

ODE TO MONDAY’S ANNA
(with apologies to real poets and English Majors)

Long have you been with us
Each and every Monday night.
Patiently guiding us on our mats
to do our yoga right.

You always put us through our paces
Rarely hard, but ever gentle.
‘Tho our comments and our antics
sometimes made you think we’re mental.

Your work bore fruit! An elite emerged!
Along the room’s back walls,
The proud “Orthopedic Ward” * are we,
Monday faithful one and all!

Eric, Ann, Donna, Barb
And our Lindas three,
Althea, Steve, Andrea, Hal
And all our company.

Perhaps you’ll miss our faces,
And the sound of creaking knees.
Grunts, groans and heavy breathing,
As you we try to please.

Maybe what you’ll miss the most,
The sound you’ll hear no more.
Of Frank and Hal bellowing out
Their ohms in stereo.

The Lagoons

 "Azalea Lagoon"
Watercolor - 6.75"x 21.5"  
framed 10.75"x  26.5"

I caught these azaleas blooming at this lagoon at Magnolia Gardens one fine spring day.  I decided to paint the scene using this narrow horizontal format to match my earlier piece "Lowcountry Lagoon, Gator Lurking" shown below.  The frames are not identical, but are similar in design and color.  I plan to hang them this weekend at the Charleston Artist Guild, 160 East Bay St, when I work there on Saturday, Nov 26.  Perhaps they would make great Christmas gifts, even for oneself!  Check my Online Store for more info.    http://andreahazelwatercolors.ecrater.com/

Lowcountry Lagoon (Gator Lurking)

Watercolor - 6.5"x21"

Have you spotted the gator lurking at this lagoon at Charleston's Magnolia Gardens?  You had better believe he is not the only one nearby!  This was matted and framed in a 8" x 24" frame, and will soon hang at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery, 160 East Bay St.  

Remember that my 2017 Edisto Lowcountry Paintings calendars are still available.  Quite a few folks have asked  me to "put one aside for them",  but that is hard for me to keep up with if you don't order.  Local folks can order the Local Purchase option in my online store, and check that payment will be by Personal Check, and you pay when you pick up your calendar.
