Low Country Blues 
Oil on linen

For about six years, I studied online with a wonderful painter and teacher, Mary Gilkerson, native low-country artist of Charleston and Savannah, where she lived and painted her luscious fields and swampy low country vistas. She was an excellent experienced and patient teacher, who inspired countless painters to join her journeys and 5-day challenges to learn painting with skill, discipline and confidence. She was a one-person painting school with classic southern warmth and a wry sense of humor. I am so thankful to have stumbled on her memorable classes, many of which you may enjoy now on You.Tube.

Created in Spring 2022, is this last work of a five-day challenge, which was Mary's last class just a few days before she left this life. Here, following Mary's Challenge Guidelines, I used the same palette as I had the first four days of the challenge. Choosing an abstract exploration, unique marks and minimal color mixing and application, you see the restraint of minimalism working abstractly - another discipline of painting styles. Low Country Blues is oil-painted on gessoed linen, 6" x 6", framed floating in a white wooden Ampersand frame, ready to hang. I've opened my heart and soul to letting abstraction in while I listen and dance with the brushes rhythmically to Mary's favorite Allman Brothers Band. I will miss her and hope she is resting in peace.

I'm back to my blog here since before Covid, hoping to find some of you followers still receiving email. Please resubscribe and add your comments. A new collection of post-covid paintings is in the works with lots more to come.
