Fort Pulaski National Monument

May 15, 2022

One of the most wonderful things about being an artist is the research. Delivering a painting gave me the opportunity to visit Fort Pulaski National Monument. It is between Wilmington Island and Tybee Island in Georgia. So happy to find myself there on a blue, blue day! I am inspired. There will be paintings! Here are just a couple of the photos of a spectacular day of research and inspiration.

Will get to use all my blues on this one!
Look at those clouds! Can’t wait to sit and observe them closely with a brush in my hand.

If you get the chance to visit Fort Pulaski National Monument, it is well worth you time. The folks there were super nice and you can tell they are great caretakers. Lots of history and pristine landscape. Maybe I will see you there. Look for me; I’m the one with the easel! : )

Thank you for visiting with me,

    I think this Park was beautiful and well maintained. The fort was very interesting along with seeing the people working on the archeological site .

      Came home and got started right away. Working in value only right now, just blocking in.
      I have a great guest room if you are ever this way! : )

    And I do believe you have already named that one particular paining! All the blues! I absolutely love them all, but that one speaks to me! That one and the cool pic of Robert talking to the archaeologists! How “Robert” is that?!
