The Wood Nymph

The Wood Nymph, Middleton Place, Charleston, S.C.
Artist Tish Murphy remembered that I had taken pictures of the Wood Nymph at Middleton Place and shared her recent painting. I love it when artists do that! Find her work here: Tish Murphy Fine Art.

Among the Azaleas" 12x 12 acrylic on canvas: This is "The Wood Nymph" statue from Middleton Place, Charleston, SC. This statue by Schadow (1810), was buried for safekeeping during the Civil War in 1865, and now overlooks the Azalea Pool in the Gardens. It was a striking moment when I came upon her with the azaleas in bloom and felt compelled to paint and share her image. — at Middleton Place
