“Path Through the Woods”

I so enjoy a lovely hike on a wooded path! This scene is from a photo of the path near the parking area for the Overall Run Falls trail in the northern part of the Shenandoah National Forest. When rain has been abundant, the view of the 93′ waterfall at the overlook from this trail is spectacular!

“Open Arms”

Earlier this year, we visited our elder daughter who lives near Front Royal, VA. We took a ride on the northern section of Skyline Drive, which has the most beautiful views of the Shenandoah Valley. This beautiful, old tree was still standing near one of the lookouts, and I was inspired to paint it.

“Main Coast III”

The photos my family took from our vacation to coastal Maine in Acadia National Park in July 2021 continue to inspire me. The rocky coastline is just so beautiful, and very different from the beaches in my home state of NC.

“Blue Swallowtail”

One of my daughters had emailed me some beautiful photos from a recent hike she enjoyed. One of the images was a close-up of a Swallowtail butterfly that was enjoying some sunshine right in the middle of the trail. As much as I love butterflies, I knew this would make a lovely piece. I enjoyed painting this one very much!

“Boiling Springs Barn”

This watercolor is of an old, dilapidated barn that sits just outside the little college town of Boiling Springs, NC, a bit of the local scene near the university campus.

The roof is peeling apart, and the old truck has been sitting there for a very long time.

“Linville Gorge”

I recently completed this watercolor from a beautiful view I have enjoyed in Linville Gorge, in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina.  This old pine tree stood alone against the forces of nature for many years.

“Blackwater Falls Near Davis, WV”

My daughter sent me a photo from a motorcycle trip she took, stopping at Blackwater Falls in Davis, WV. This waterfall is beautiful, a 57′ cascade of dark water that is colored by the tannic acid of the fallen hemlock and red spruce needles.

“Serenity”

In July 2021, I traveled to Maine with my family to explore Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor area. We stayed just off of Desert Island, and this view was part of the scenery along the road between our rental property and the entrance to the park.

This beautiful coastal meadow is a peaceful combination of pools, rocks, grass, and forests.
