"Respect for Hero's Past" Painting of Gen. Moultrie Monument by Charleston Artist Katherine M. Schneider

Charleston's newest monument honors Revolutionary War hero Gen. William Moultrie. The statue faces the Charleston harbor and Historic Fort Moultrie, where he lays at rest.

For this painting, I chose a view from behind the monument with the statue looking out toward the harbor he helped defend at a critical time in our countries history.

I also felt it was important to include figures of visitors to the monument honoring Gen. Moultrie's memory by reading about his heroic efforts to secure our freedom and independence during the American Revolution.

"Respect for Hero's Past"
Oil on panel 10" x 8"
Price: $175.00


Painting at White Point Gardens today was a nice contrast to yesterday's rain shower. It was sunny and a cool breeze from the harbor made it a great day to paint outside.

The oleander bushes are in full bloom adding their summer color to the year round beauty at this spot where" the Ashley and Cooper Rivers meet to form the Atlantic Ocean" as Charlestonians are fond of saying.

As I painted, I met visitors from all over our country and Great Britain who were also enjoying the weather, history, and beauty of Charleston.

Weather like this makes it great to visit our historic city or for a local to get out and "Paint Charleston Daily".
