“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.

“Buds”

I have just completed a smaller oil on canvas that I am calling “Buds.” These are my “grandcats,” sitting on a table together, gazing out a window to watch the birds and squirrels.

Happy Endings

I was very happy to successfully deliver “Yacht Island, Lake Lure, NC” to the individuals who commissioned this piece. A VERY good day!

“Yacht Island, Lake Lure, NC” Commission

I have recently completed a really large project … a 40 X 32″ oil on canvas commissioned piece that is such a beautiful view of a part of Lake Lure. This was a big endeavor, but I enjoyed working on step by step. One of the things I like about this work is watching a painting come to life as I complete each section. And of course, on a painting this large, it is a tremendous feeling of accomplishment when I complete the final steps.

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!

Arts on the Square

I participated in Uptown Shelby’s “Arts on the Square” yesterday, and enjoyed the event very much. We were especially thankful for the cloudy sky which kept the temperatures lower than had been predicted! I was also awarded the “Best 2D Artist” prize, which was a very nice honor.

I am now looking forward to going through the photos my husband Bob took on our recent whitewater canoeing adventure on the Green River in Utah for my next painting endeavor!

“Stone Mountain Cabin”

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.

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!
