View From The Lodge, 6 x 12" oil on panel ©2014, Fay Terry
These trees made quite an impression on me on a recent visit to Sea Island, Georgia. We arrived just in time for lunch and were seated facing this view. The shadows on the grass and the long expanse of the ocean made me want to paint this scene.
Every evening between six and seven a bagpiper stood in the shade and played the pipes. He gradually moved from one end of the lawn to the other. It was a beautiful sight and the music was well suited to the early evening atmosphere with nice breezes coming off the water.
I really enjoy painting long rectangular paintings once in awhile; they are a nice change from my usual square daily paintings.
