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!

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’ve been working on two watercolors recently. I’ve completed one of them: “Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station, Outer Banks, NC”, 22 x 16″, $700 which includes matting and framing. This the restored Chicamacomico Life Saving Station in Rodanthe NC, on Hatteras Island. Before the Coast Guard, there were life saving stations scattered up and down the Outer Banks, which were staffed by local men who watched for ship wrecks and tried to rescue sailors. This one has been restored and preserves much history of bygone days on the Outer Banks.
