About this painting:
I never tire painting the North Carolina landscape... I live on the Carolina Coast but spend as much time in the Blue Ridge mountains as possible, all the while, painting as I journey through life.
The Octagon House in Carteret County has fascinated me since I was a kid. It is the oldest structure in Carteret County, NC and seems to be built according to a popular fad of eight sided houses of the mid 1800's. The grounds offer splendid views of the White Oak River and marsh like this one.
