Afternoon Sun, 16 x 20 " oil on canvas, ©2015, Fay Terry
Bald Head Island is one of my favorite places to be and to paint. There is plenty of variety in the landscape, the houses, and the vegetation. Summer afternoons are often sweltering, but there are many spots where one can find a cool breeze and a shady retreat from the sun.
I have painted this scene a couple of times just because I love Captain Charlie's House. We are lucky to have lots of blue skies and balmy summer hours ahead. We can then pretend there is no such thing as winter!
