"The Red Bridge"
Watercolor - 10.5"x14"


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.
