Here a couple of samples of some of my recent work:
The first painting is a scene I created from two different photographs. One had the little farm drive and trees, and the other photo has the barely seen barn and truck. I thought they could be a good combination. This painting is a 16x20 pastel and is framed and hanging in High Country Art at this time.
This is the type of scenery that really draws me in. I am a confirmed "tree" lover and most of my paintings will have at least a couple of trees. If not that, then it will be a scene of rocks and water -- as in North Georgia streams -- the kind you want to take your shoes off and go wading in! Here is a photo of one of my paintings in this type of scenery:
I hope you can come to Blue Ridge and High Country Art on Saturday and watch me create paintings. I love to talk while I am painting and answer questions. It makes me feel good to discuss the process of painting and share my passion with others. People are part of what makes creating art possible. Your pleasure in viewing what I have created is one of the things that keeps me creating. Of course, it goes without saying that I must enjoy the creative process. And . . . believe me I do! I can't wait to see what the next painting will turn out to be. We don't always know. We may have a vision of what we intend, but sometimes the painting itself tells us the direction it wants to go in. I always listen.
Come see me this Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 4 or 5:00 p.m. in downtown Blue Ridge at High Country Art & Antiques Gallery! Say Hello!
