Pieces of 8 were on Grandfather Mountain, scattered about painting, and I saw Mary at the top of the path painting a big view. Since I enjoy dappled light it I was more excited about painting the path leading to Mary. It was such a beautiful spot.

|Before the Storm|
|After the Storm|
Hurricane Isaac was long and drawn out, so it was many days before the peaceful, warm, sunny scene in the "After" painting. I am so lucky to live here--barring storm surge, of course.
This painting comes with an easel so it may be easily displayed according to your mood. It's kind of a "Mood Ring" of art, and it's two paintings in one!

Our painting group, Pieces of 8, is off to the North Carolina mountains again this week. We can't let Cindy continue to have fun up there by herself. After what I call the Summer of My Discontent, this is a much-needed change to recharge my batteries. This has been quite a year, and I don't mean that in a good way, so I am looking forward to our annual art retreat.
