I’ve recently finished two watercolor paintings, inspired by the beautiful scenery from trails I’ve hiked in the last year in the Stone Mountain State Park in Roaring Gap, NC. It’s just a beautiful area, and I have really enjoyed camping there!

I’ve just finished an oil on canvas, “Indian Creek Falls.” This image I painted from a photograph my husband Bob took this past year when we were hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains. This trail was so beautiful! I can’t decide which I liked better … this hike or painting the image of the lovely falls.

It’s finished and one of my biggest watercolor painting to date. It is so big, I began painting this with my paper on the floor because I couldn’t reach the top area when I had it laid out on my work table. I’m really happy with the results, and look forward to this one being a highlight of my display for my booth at the “Artisphere” in Greenville, SC May 10-12, 2019. In the meantime, I’ve got this piece displayed in my space at the Buffalo Creek Gallery, in Shelby, NC.
With some quiet time during the holiday season, I’ve started a new, rather ambitious watercolor. It is so big, I had to start working on it on the floor with a drop cloth. Once I get farther down the paper, I’ll be able to put it on my table and reach everything for continued work. It is 35 x 28″ in size. I haven’t decided on a title yet, but it is the Oconoluftee river in Smoky Mountain National Park. I’m looking forward to the new year! Happy 2019 all!

I just finished my largest painting to date … a private commission that is a whopping 6′ x 3′. This is an oil on canvas gallery wrap painting that is a private commission. I’m grateful I had my husband’s help with building the frame for this canvas as I believe it might have been too difficult for me to tackle solo.
I have just finished a new watercolor that I enjoyed creating very much. Stone Bridge was built in the 1920s over the Little River in North Florida. Workers hauled in concrete in wheelbarrows … Continue reading ““Stone Bridge””
