Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge near Sandbridge Beach and the VA/NC border is one of the most beautiful places on earth and my favorite place to paint. It includes a thin strip of barrier island coastline with beaches, dunes, woodlands, and freshwater marshes, providing habitat for the loggerhead sea turtle, brown pelican, and bald eagle.
You can walk away with one of my prints of Back Bay at the Back Bay Restoration Foundation's 30th Flyway Feast on October 24th from 12-5 on Knott's Island, with total proceeds from my prints benefiting the BBRF!! Help BBRF continue their mission of preserving, protecting, and improving Back Bay and its watershed!! The event will have live music, all you can eat food, live and silent auction, raffle, as well as kids activities.
