“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.

Stone Mt. State Park watercolors

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!

“Oconaluftee River” ~ completed watercolor

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.
