This is not the way the beach looked here today. Most of the day has been filled with rain and dark, dark, clouds. It was still a great day, but not a day for sitting on the beach.
This painting was donated to a silent auction at Episcopal Day School in Southern Pines a while back. A friend of mine bid on the painting and won it and decided to give it as a birthday present to her mother in law who is a huge Duke fan. Consequently, I was asked to make the little white trim on the side flap of the chair into a "D" for Duke. Can you even imagine how hard this was for a die-hard Carolina fan like me? Duke is the team we all love to hate. Anyway, we do things like this for friends
