“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:

“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.

“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.

“Shunkawauken Falls”

Shunkawauken Falls is a roadside 150-foot tall waterfall just outside Columbus (near Tryon and Saluda) on the twisting, scenic White Oak Mountain Road. The photo my husband Bob took on a recent outing that we enjoyed made for a perfect composition for this long, tall, gallery wrap canvas.

“Early Light on the First Broad”

I recently decided to find a snowy image to paint with the idea of using a photo of my finished painting as a holiday card. I painted this oil on canvas from a photo my husband Bob took on one of our winter walks when we had a rare and beautiful snow.

Paintings from western NC scenery

With the world on pause right now, I’ve been spending more time in my studio. My husband, Bob, has captured many photos of beautiful scenery we’ve enjoyed on drives we’ve taken when the weather is nice. These images have been inspiring to me, and I have enjoyed creating these recent paintings:
