The Road to Beaufort, NC

Original Art; Pastel pleine-aire painting of the view from the Duke Marine Center on Pivers Island, NC by Rose Ganucheau.

Painted at the Duke marine Lab in early summer 2007.  I found these short leaved, gnarled pines where I set my easel under their dappled shade looking back toward the road to Beaufort, NC.  It was beachy-breezy, and I had to hold onto my gear as I painted.  I couldn't keep the hat on my head, and ended up with a sunburn.  The sky and water were a hundred shades of blue as the light ricocheted off the constantly moving landscape.

Work:15 x 11,  Framed
