Update #2

First Photo Trip Scheduled!

Comment

Hello all my wonderful Ghosts Project backers!

I've been busily gathering information on Revolutionary War and Civil War battle sites, and my first photo gathering trip is scheduled for November 23-30. It will be a one week road trip starting in Philadelphia, PA and ending in Lynchburg, VA. In between I'll be photographing Valley Forge and Gettysburg in PA; Old Tennent Church and Rose Hill Cemetery (a Revolutionary War period cemetery) in NJ; Antietam in Maryland; Seward House, Lafayette Square, Ford Theater, and the Fort Delaware Prison in D.C. In Virginia I'll be visiting about a dozen places including Appomattox, Lexington, and Harper's Ferry. I'll be starting the first paintings as soon as I get back to the studio.

As for the future, the Pearl Harbor trip is scheduled for early August, and I will be scheduling the trip to Normandy shortly. Thanks to one of my Linked-In history buddies, I have a wonderful itinerary for touring the beaches of Normandy that I'm sure will prove to be very helpful in covering a lot of the area and getting some wonderful images.

I'll keep you all updated and post photos when I return from the trip. Thank you all for making this project a reality. I will try my best to create paintings you can all be proud of and that do honor to the conflicts and times they will represent.

Thanks,
Carrie
