From Mark, From Charleston

Today's Work-a-Day is a piece I did in Charleston late last week. I went to the Hatfield II Fine Art Gallery at the corner of Queen and Church where I set up my easel outside. The weather was ideal. I made three drawings of the French Hugenot Church--a striking white and black, semi-gothic architecture. Before my first drawing was half finished, a lady from Ohio put a claim on it and came back to purchase it after a Ferry Tour of the harbor.

The French Hugenots, after they were driven out of France in the late 1600s, established the French Quarter of Charleston even before there was a French community in New Orleans. The reason I I know this is by overhearing it repeatedly as horse drawn carriage tours passed by me while I painted.

Although, it's not the largest or the tallest or the most impressive church in Charleston, I think it's the most exquisite.
