And I have a wondrous tale to tell! It is a story about the abundant Spring Island hospitality and generosity.  Add to that, Spring Island's exquisite natural environment, became an incubator that offered me an opportunity for new growth.  It doesn't get any better than that!

Each day this week I will post images that will share the special and memorable journey I had into a paradise like no other!  Images from day one will follow. 

Avenue of Oaks leading down to the historic ruins of a once thriving plantation, perhaps the symbol of the merging of past and present on Spring Island.

Set up for a show of my work in the studio next to studio where I was working, in "the Barn".

The first day, my goal was to create a comfortable environment within the space of a fabulous and well lit studio in the Barn.  Setting up a few things to create a certain familiarity was the first step.  I set up a 2 tall containers I had brought and almost immediately added something new, a brilliant green apple.  It was a special gift from a Spring Islander wishing me the best for the week, one of the first of many acts friendship, hospitality and support. Then I did a large charcoal drawing, quickly and furiously, to loosen up.  This would after all, become my "nest" for the rest of the week...  Look for more tomorrow!
