“Maine Coast”

The New England coast does not have sandy beaches like we enjoy in North Carolina, but jumbled, rough outcroppings of granite. This scene is from Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine.

“Mountain Creek”

I so enjoy hiking along a mountain creek, where streams are strewn with rocks that are often moss-covered because of the dampness and the shade from overhanging trees. There is something incredibly peaceful listening to the sound of the water spilling over the stones. I am always inspired!

“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.

“Tractor, Hay, Quilt”

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.

“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.

“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!

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:

“Carrick Creek II”

Carrick Creek Falls is located in Table Rock State Park near Pickens, SC. I enjoy hiking there , and have been inspired to paint this waterfall multiple times. This new painting is a watercolor, measuring 21 x 15″. I have it matted, framed and ready to hang, and it is now available for sale for $850.

“Split Rail”

Living in western North Carolina, I really enjoy being up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This watercolor is from near milepost 189, a view of Puckett Cabin, former home of Orlean and John Puckett. Orlean worked as a midwife, serving her community in Carroll for many years, delivering more than one thousand babies.
