“Melting”

Leading up to the holiday season, I enjoy painting a beautiful winter scene and use it for the cards I mail to friends and family. This one is a scene from Yellowstone National Park when we visited one June when there was still snow pack hanging around, melting slowly.

More Gallery Wraps

Last month I completed some new 5 x 7″ oil on canvas gallery wraps. This first piece I’ve titled “Barn’s End” is an old, historic barn located on Diggs Valley Road in northern Virginia.

“Maine Coast”

The New England coast does not have sandy beaches like we enjoy in North Carolina, but jumbled, rough outcroppings of granite. This scene is from Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine.

“Mountain Creek”

I so enjoy hiking along a mountain creek, where streams are strewn with rocks that are often moss-covered because of the dampness and the shade from overhanging trees. There is something incredibly peaceful listening to the sound of the water spilling over the stones. I am always inspired!

“First Broad Snow”

We are not lucky enough to get snow regularly where we live in NC, so when we do, I so enjoy hiking around in the winter weather. I am inspired by the snowy landscapes that grace the First Broad River near my home. This recently completed oil on canvas makes me feel peaceful and cozy, remembering lovely winter weather.

New Gallery Wraps + NVA Fine Arts Festival

It’s been a busy summer! We’ve been on some road trips, including an adventure up the east coast to Maine. I am planning my next piece from a photo my husband Bob took of a lighthouse we visited there.

Additionally, I’ve been preparing for the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston, VA September 10-12, 2021.

Meanwhile, I’ve completed these two gallery wraps, which are now available for sale:

“Old Dodge”

Recently finished this watercolor. I found this old truck sitting beside a barn in Valle Crucis, NC.  Bushes were growing up through the truck bed, so obviously, it had been there for quite a long time.  Eventually, it disappeared, and I have no idea what happened to it.
