Seafood Market

Watercolor - 16" x 12"
     A few weeks ago Frank and I stepped into quaint and tiny Flowers Seafood Co. on Edisto Island, SC.  We have driven past it for years, and I had been meaning to check them out for a long time.  I photographed the exterior before we entered, gathering reference material for this painting.  Then we went in and I bought 3 lbs of fresh local shrimp and a pound of fresh scallops. (The scallops are long gone now, having met their fate while wrapped in bacon for dinner one recent evening.  Scrumptious!) 
     This piece is now on display, along with 13 others of my work,  at the Edisto Island Historical Museum,  8123 Chisolm Plantation Road, Edisto Island, SC, just off the main thoroughfare, Highway 174.  Look for the brown Edisto Island Historical Museum sign on the right, as you're driving towards Edisto Beach.
