Since moving to South Carolina I have been painting. I took a beginner’s class at Black Creek Arts Council under the instruction of Frankie Busch. After the beginner’s class I joined The Wednesday Painting Group. This year the group had our first show at Black Creek. I had two paintings hanging in the show. When the show was over and I went to pick up my paintings, I was thrilled to discover that Purple Cone Flowers had been sold! My first watercolor sale!
