“Red Barn with Cows”

This fall, I have enjoyed drives on country roads in the western NC mountains with my husband. We saw this beautiful barn on one of these drives.

I painted this watercolor of a beautiful barn we saw on a back roads drive in western NC. My husband, Bob, built the frame for this piece from old, weathered barn siding.

“Best in Show”

I am thrilled to learn that Mossy Creek has been selected as the Best in Show winner of the Gaston County Art Guild award in their Virtual Visual Harvest Show. There is a video of judge Katie St. Clair’s comments on this webpage, and Mossy Creek is the first piece that she critiques.

“Tumbling Creek”

This scene is from a lovely creek in Julian Price Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Boone, NC. A wild mountain stream is so beautiful as it rushes over the rocks, sometimes carrying logs in its wake.

“Mossy Creek”

I recently completed another extra large watercolor I’ve titled, “Mossy Creek.” This one was so large that I had to start work on it flat on the floor before I could move it to my work table. If I had to pick just one, either a weathered barn or a beautiful mountain stream filled with mossy rocks and waterfalls, I’m not sure I could decide! I just really enjoy painting the all of the different, natural textures and colors.

“Soco Falls”

With the COVID shutdown, my husband, Bob, and I enjoy taking scenic drives up into the mountains. Soco Falls is a beautiful double waterfall just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, a bit north of Cherokee, NC. I painted this oil on canvas from a photo Bob took on a recent rambling adventure we had driving through the mountains.

“Gray”

This watercolor I have titled “Gray” as both the sky and the weathered barn wood provide this contrast for the bright, vibrant trees and the grasses that are growing in the field in the foreground. I can just imagine what that will smell like when they cut it, making hay!
