Ginseng Mountain Lane

This is my favorite from this past weekend in Highland County. It was a very casual Paint Out with about 20 ladies painting the area. SOOO many places to paint, and a lot of long distant views. But the choices we made where where we could find SHADE. I was under a big ash tree for this one. Will be sharing a few more from the trip soon.  16" x 20"  $400. SOLD

First Cutting

Sorry this photo is not better! I think when the canvas is so long it is harder to photograph. This was done the other morning with my friend Polly, and I have been working on it the last few days. It is at my neighbors farm, and they have already moved the bales of hay. I got out there last evening also and did one looking the other direction, practical while they were taking the bales I was painting! Will try to re-photograph it later.
12" x 48"  oil on canvas, $550. SOLD

Red Barn, Crozet

Painted this yesterday with Karen and Nancy just a few miles down the road at this old apple orchard. This was the packing barn. It is now owned by a new person and we are hoping to go paint there again soon. The three of us want to show our paintings together side-by-side next year, so we will hold onto one painting a month. This will be the first one, and I am delighted to house this for the year! Will let you know when and where the show is!  16" x 20" oil on board.
