Each winter I hope our area will get luck and we’ll have some snow and true winter weather. I recently painted this scene from a photo my husband took last winter when it was cold enough to snow and freeze the local pond. We really enjoyed our winter walk that day!
I’ve recently completed a new watercolor, “Stone Mountain Cabin”. This is an original pioneer farm home preserved in Stone Mt. State Park in NC as part of a model 19th century farm with a barn and other outbuildings.

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 recently finished this watercolor. My husband and I have camped and done some wonderful hiking in the Stone Mountain State Park in North Carolina, and this view was really inspiring!

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!

The second is titled “Tom Branch Waterfall”. It is a 14 x 18″ framed watercolor, ready to hang, and available for sale for $675.
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””
