“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).

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:
