Day One - 2012 RBC Heritage Golf Tournament

We made our way to the number six green.  The tree that sits just to the right of the green was calling my name :)  Later we moved our chairs to the number three tee box.  The stands face number two green. And, as always, the MetLife blimp graced the sky above.

And.... a funny.  Between the 1st and 9th fairways is a spot where vendors can set up tents.  It's always fun to walk through and see what's being offered.  This year RBC had a blue screen set up and you could get your picture taken.  This is a good laugh.  It looks like I'm going on safari :)

  1. Oh, dear, next year you must wear your checked pants and bright shirt so you look like a golfer :) ha ha Love the sketch!! You know, you might be able to make connections there to paint the golf course for the group and have it hung in the lobby - or somewhere prominent!! Tom Lynch does that kind of thing all the time, I think.

    1. Played for 25 years, Laure. Not ever real well so when Rob had back surgery a couple of years ago I was happy to take a break. Love being out on golf courses, just not chasing the ball around :)

  3. Love the paintings and drawings. I saw Alice Ravenal Huger Smith's paintings at an art gallery in Charleston a few years ago and fell in love with her work. It is nice to see you are painting in the same media in the part of the world. Beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Ann! Over the years this tree called to me many times. It's fun to look back and see how I chose to capture it.
