"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

McClellanville 2 '08
Today I went to the nearby fishing village of McClellanville to get some shrimp boat photos and some lunch.The town has a large fishing fleet and arguably the best seafood in the state. (It certainly has the freshest seafood I have ever had.)Unfortunately, Hurricane Hugo came ashore right atop of the town, and nearly wiped the once thriving town off the map. There are whole streets no, without a single building on them.Hurricane or no, there is a certain beauty about the area can’t be found elsewhere.Many of the survivors decided to stay put as evidenced by all the little local shops.I plan on coming back to paint the uniquely southern town.
