Martha Lou's Kitchen

This is my newest addition to the "Uptown in Downtown Charleston" series. My daughter loves this painting, because this was her late Daddy's "Spot"! In fact, it is featured in the recent Post and Courier 2009 Restaurant Guide as one of the top 3 restaurants for "Lowcountry Comfort Cuisine." They called it Ms. Martha Lou's "pink palace on Morrison Drive." I didn't know about the Restaurant Guide feature when I decided to paint this - I just thought it looked cool and I wanted to paint it!

Charcoal Drawing

Charcoal on paper - 18"x24"
This was my Drawing I homework from last week. We were to draw an interior space in correct perspective, determining eye-level and the vanishing point. I drew this while sitting in our den, looking through the kitchen and laundry room into the powder room. I drew with vine charcoal, which is a challenge for me, but I love the effect.

Townes Hamilton Barber

Here's a pencil sketch I did for practice at the hospital the day grandson Townes was born, March 2, 2009. The sketch was done while I looked at the screen of my digital camera at a photo I had just taken. The sketch was done in the maternity waiting room while Townes and Mommy were getting ready to move from delivery to their hospital room.
