“First Broad Snow”

We are not lucky enough to get snow regularly where we live in NC, so when we do, I so enjoy hiking around in the winter weather. I am inspired by the snowy landscapes that grace the First Broad River near my home. This recently completed oil on canvas makes me feel peaceful and cozy, remembering lovely winter weather.

New Gallery Wraps + NVA Fine Arts Festival

It’s been a busy summer! We’ve been on some road trips, including an adventure up the east coast to Maine. I am planning my next piece from a photo my husband Bob took of a lighthouse we visited there.

Additionally, I’ve been preparing for the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston, VA September 10-12, 2021.

Meanwhile, I’ve completed these two gallery wraps, which are now available for sale:

“Old Dodge”

Recently finished this watercolor. I found this old truck sitting beside a barn in Valle Crucis, NC.  Bushes were growing up through the truck bed, so obviously, it had been there for quite a long time.  Eventually, it disappeared, and I have no idea what happened to it.

5 x 7″ Gallery Wraps

I’ve been enjoying creating some pieces in a smaller format recently. These 5 x 7″ gallery wraps have a 1.5″ edge, which makes them the equivalent of an 8 x 10″ painting.

“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.
