Salt Run Series is inspired by oysters, all hand picked by my husband out of Salt Run, the small body of water near the St. Augustine lighthouse. After many oyster roasts with neighbors, friends and family, I set out to paint not only the beautifully organic shaped shells, but the deep sense of community that they brought to my life. They gave my family and I the opportunity to invite people in, have a conversation, and make memories that last a lifetime. The Salt Run Series is just that, a representation of a life well lived in community with one another. Oil on canvas and watercolor on paper.
