This impressive waterfall is in Stumphouse Park in Oconee County, SC. This park is 440 acres and has much history and beauty for visitors to enjoy.
“7th Street Barn”
This unusual barn is located in Indianapolis , IN. The weathered red board were so intriguing to me to paint.
This fallen tree lays next to the Appalachian Trail in the Shenandoah Park in northern Virginia. I am going to submit this piece to the NC Watercolor Society in hopes it will be selected for their next showing.
“Kings Mountain Barn”
This is an unusual barn that was constructed with metal sheeting, which is now aged and rusting.
“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!
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.
“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.
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.
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.
“Diggs Valley Road Barn”
There is a little traveled unpaved road in Loudoun County, VA, where this beautiful, historic barn is quietly deteriorating. I like the composition of this building, including the old stone, stucco, wood and rusting metal.
This watercolor I have recently completed will be included in the NC Watercolor Society’s annual exhibit in New Bern, NC, this October (2022).
