Some of my favorite things to paint are landmarks. I love preserving history through my own eyes in watercolor. It’s actually how I began honing my skills. I have developed a couple of different style, but illustration is by far my favorite. I’ve only completed one landmark in acrylic (Carolina Theater) and it was a lot of fun blending colors together.
Friday, my team at Ralph Lauren (my full-time job) took a field trip to a Winston-Salem institution. My director grew up eating lunch there on the weekends with his grandfather and wanted to share it with us. Boy was it good! I had a couple of hot dogs and didn’t try the barbecue. I did have an ice cold Cheerwine (get in in the bottle…it’s better) and a locally made B&G Pie. They aren’t for everyone, but I grew up on them. My dad would bring them home like some people bring home Krispy Kremes. I think I am feeling inspired to create some of those childhood sweet memories…..stay tuned!
