More Travel Pictures & Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all my friends have a Happy Thanksgiving! These are some more pictures from our trip to the Outer Banks this past summer. I am finshing up some paintings from this trip and a Tennessee trip and will post the results soon.

This is the coastline at Ocracoke Island. Because no development is allowed on the beach, you can look all directions and see nothing but beach, dunes, and ocean. It feels like you are miles from civilization and it is a great place for quiet relaxation, or in my case, painting!
This is Cape Hatteras lighthouse at the Outer Banks area of North Carolina. We stopped off at the various lighthouses on the Outer Banks on our way home from Ocracoke Island.

Here is a shot of a beach access walkway on Ocracoke Island. The island has a quiet beauty to it and I have many photos and reference sketches to use in the future. I am thinking about a whole series of NC Coastal Paintings.

This is Bodie Island Lighthouse. Unlike Cape Hatteras, this lighthouse is not located near the coastline, but near a waterway in the salt marshes surrounding the Outer Banks area.
Hope to show some new paintings soon. I have been painting for Christmas exhibits, but just haven' t got those images uploaded yet. Will do soon hopefully!
