Back to blogging!

As many of you know, I have not been posting here lately because I am the proud parent of a 8 1/2 month old baby girl that has taken up quite a bit of my time the last few months. Anyway, I am back at it and I will be posting new work I have been doing as well as adding some new things to this blog. Stay tuned!

New Plein Air Landscape Painting

"Afternoon Light, Liberty Farm"
8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel

I painted this a few weeks ago on location near Liberty, NC. The afternoon sun was fading fast and I wanted to capture the great light and shadow patterns of the afternoon. I had great fun doing this one.

Captain White House Garden

"Captain White House Garden"
5" x 7" Oil on panel

I painted this piece on location last week at the historic Captain White House. The house is home to the Alamance County Arts Council and Picasso's Gallery and Gift shop. I painted this in the side courtyard garden. It was about 35 degrees and the water in the fountain next to me was frozen solid! I braved it for as long as I could, them packed it up and went home.

Lavender painting

"Summer Lavender"
24" x 36"
Oil on Slim Gallery Wrap Canvas
Sorry about the crooked picture but I was in a hurry. I will repost a better shot when I have a few minutes to spare.

This is a shot of the piece above our sofa. I sometimes do this for potential buyers that are purchasing from me online so they can get a sense of the scale of a piece before they buy.
We just moved in this house last year, so the walls are still white, but we have plans to paint soon.
