"New Inverness"

Inverness meaning the mouth of the River Ness in Scotch.  (Inbhir Nis in Gallic) . This  Georgia coastal town called "Darien" today was discovered by the Scotch in 1746 and the river was it's source of survival and prosperity.  The Scotch settlers named it "New Inverness" after the major Scottish city of "Inverness" also built on the river. It has seen layers of evolution from being a cotton farming area to a shipping capital for timber until the railroads came to a now a major shrimp port and an environmental studies area. This series is about the working man and the joy of a good days work and the heritage and pride of it's legacy on the river and the sea.

This series is still in progress and will be on exhibit at Reinike Gallery in Atlanta this fall for a virtual show.  

The work is realistic to mythological to magical above and below the sea.
