What's New?

Traditionally, October is my busiest month and this year it was no exception: workshops, art shows, learning more photoshop techniques so I can make note cards, a board meeting at the Society of Bluffton Artists Gallery where I'm recording secretary, SOBA Gallery sitting duty (you hang a painting, you work a shift). The list goes on and on :) Thank goodness Rob loves to cook!!

Here are samples of the note cards that are now available. Enjoy! Please contact me (pjbartstudioAThargray.com) if your interested in purchasing sets. They make great hostess gifts :)

This Thursday, I've planned a special field trip for my past workshop participants to Nemours Plantation. I think it's important to keep the 'nature journaling juices' alive so I plan field trips that only my alumni can attend.

Nemours Plantation is located in northern Beaufort County and extends for 8 miles along the southern bank of the Combahee River. It lies within the ACE River Basin -"listed as one of the last great places on Earth" by The Nature Conservancy.

I was introduced to Nemours when enrolled in the SC Master Naturalist Program. My class spent a day, at this private plantation, learning about the ACE Basin and how the Nemours Wildlife Foundation was established, as well as its missions. We viewed flocks of shorebirds, white pelicans, a few wood storks, herons & egrets, and learned first hand about rice trunks as we walked along rice field embankments.

I hope to post our journal pages by the weekend. Please check back!
