We are in good shape---and sincerely thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts. We lost power several times, lost a couple of trees - but in all -- extraordinarily fortunate.

Our prayers now are for the rest of the eastern coast, especially those in the direct path of Hurricane Irene - New York, Rhode Island, Boston. The eye of the storm is expected to pass over New York in about an hour.

This painting is based on photos I took last week on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina and photos I have seen on the news yesterday. Our coast has taken a hard hit - most especially from flooding - from the Sound side - and wind. Thousands of folks are without power. I am so grateful, even more now, for the time we had there the week before.

I have no news about the college since power may still be out. Our IT department shut down the network entirely, so it'll be tomorrow before we can access the damage.

Again, thank you for your prayers and thoughts and they continue for those still being impacted by the storm.

  1. so glad all was lost was a few trees, this is an amazing painting of the water,, brilliant

  2. Thanks so much, Laurie -- couldn't get to the coast for obvious reasons this weekend! LOL

  3. So glad all is now well with you. You have a wonderful painting as a momento!

  4. That is really gorgeous...and glad you're safe!

  5. This really captures the power of the waves. Love the colors and the sponteneity of your work. Glad you're okay.

  6. Excellent Teri! Scary to see the fury in action... We don't suffer from Tornadoes or Hurricanes in South Africa, but one big storm which wiped out beach-front properties on the North Coast gave us an inkling of what you go through. Glad you all are safe.
