Good morning Charleston! From the green room of WCIV-TV channel 4 waiting to go on Lowcountry Live this morning talking about #thebeecottagestory. I’ll be reading and signing @fritzporterchs in Charleston on Tuesday and @thegreenshutter in Mt Pleasant on Wednesday. Details in my website. Come see me!

Happy Valentine’s Day. Finally got to the Costume Institute at the Met on last trip to New York. The Countess Jacqueline de Ribes was and is a paragon of style, and also gracious and lovely in person. I was thrilled to meet her ca 2005 at a party in Venice….
So this cow walks out of a painting… “Afternoon in the Vineyard'” by moi (and posted earlier, sorry for the re-run) and the little Staffordshire cow that was my mother’s and one of my treasures. They seem made for each other, but it is not to be, alas. “Afternoon” is drying and about to be shipped to its new owner. Going to a very good home. #oaksavannavineyard #rancholazaca #landscape #pleinairpainting #losolivos #santaynezvalley #santabarbarawinecountry #socal #staffordshirecow
What a treat to visit the New York studio of the amazing and talented Karen Tompkins, whose work examines the elements of the universe, literally, as each of this series represents an element of the periodic table. Find her @tompart
Single stems in like bottles grouped together make a statement. Orchids at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami, where I was over the weekend for a women’s conference.
Bye bye Miami… Great conference and great people.
