Marti Hughes

Marti Hughes is one of our favorite artists who lives here on Hilton Head Island. We met her through our church. She dropped by Smith Galleries today with this piece titled "Simple Pleasures" which shows a local family having a picnic on a sandy area near the marsh. I love the images of the children flying kites as I (Wally) too like to fly kites. It is a fun piece with positive imagery. It makes me want to pack a picnic basket. What is your favorite food item to go in your picnic basket? Mine is fried chicken.
The painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 16" x 20". It is offered framed at $650.
