Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

These are two of the oil sketches I did while I was in a small state park in NC. Both are 6 X 8" and because of the winds there they are loaded with sand. Wherever you set up to paint the wind is blowing the sand about. This is why the Wright brothers chose this area for flying, so I am told.

What else blows into paintings? I guess it depends on the location--leaves, dandedion fluff, soot, menus left on porches?

Hi, Lynn: mostly it's bugs. They are forever getting stuck in the paint with their little feet. Steve
