It’s been an exciting couple of months. My experience at the Greenville, SC Artsphere festival was quite good for the second year in a row showing and selling my watercolor paintings. Just before this event, I sold several paintings and got a new commission for a large piece … my largest one to date. Had to build the frame for the canvas, and prep the surface for painting. This is a big project and will take time, but it is exciting and I’m happy for this opportunity.
I have just finished a new watercolor that I enjoyed creating very much. Stone Bridge was built in the 1920s over the Little River in North Florida. Workers hauled in concrete in wheelbarrows … Continue reading ““Stone Bridge””
I just got a call this week that one of my newer watercolors, “Great Blue” won first place at the “A Natural View” show in Gastonia at the Arts on Main Gallery. I didn’t even realize they were having this show and thrilled that this piece was selected! “Great Blue” is a custom framed watercolor, sized 20 x 16″ and available for sale: $750.
I cannot resist a beautiful, old weathered barn! I found this one with its fading paint is along a NC back road south of North Wilkesboro, NC. This finished watercolor is custom framed and double matted, 15 x 11.5″ and available for sale: $280.
We don’t usually get much snow where we live during winter. But the 2017-18 winter has been spectacular! My husband took a photo from one of our winter hikes of this view we had of the First Broad River. This is a highly textured oil painting that is a 35 x 12″ gallery wrap that is custom framed and available for sale for $475.
Happy news recently … this painting, “Rainforest Waterfall” sold. I visited Puerto Rico with my family several years ago, and we toured the El Yunque Rainforest park. It was so beautiful! I cried after the hurricanes went through this past season and I saw the video coverage in the aftermath of the destruction of this area. I very much hope this forest can recover and the beautiful parrots native to this area survived the storms!
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.
