This is a series begun in 2004 while living in Charleston, SC. My friend, a womens history professor, got me thinking about historical biases and I began to consider the fallacies that lay before me. What"s up with those people painted on ivory...

James Reid Pringle (1782-1840)
This is a family name from my Dad's mom's mom. I'm not bragging but the Pringles are front row in St. Stephens and St. Micheals graveyards. Charleston has some cool graveyards. If you ever go, the best one is Magnolia Cemetery, just north of the city in "the Neck" (I have people there too) and the next best one is the Unitarian Graveyard, down Gateway Walk, from King Street. My mom used to live on the Walk and my daughter and I played there a lot. It has a beautiful garden setting which is very old and overgrown. I have people in the James Island Cemetery at the end of Harbor View Road too. This painting was done in 2013 and is sold.
