Bridge Meets Land

This painting I am posting from my Norfolk Paint Out trip. I painted this the last day before I left. Thanks so much to my hosts, Ann & Larry for the good time and great neighborhood to paint in. I will try again next year perhaps, it was fun but a bit overwhelming. 8" x 10" oil on canvas, this is a gift to a friend!

Miller School Barn

This was painted this past Saturday on the upper meadow above Miller School, near Crozet. There were about 18 painters who came out for the 1st annual Paint-Out that the school sponsored. This old abandoned barn is wonderful and many of us decided to paint it. I did a smaller one too, which I will post later. Thank you Miller School and faculty! They brought us lunch also :-)  12" x 30" (I must check the size!)  $300  SOLD

Rose Hill Farm

Karen, Eileen and I have spent two or three afternoons painting at this site this week. I did this larger painting plus a smaller one. To the right of these buildings was a large European style barn that burned down a few months ago. Everyone was sad to see it go! This is a great size to do as a vertical painting, my new favorite!
24" x 30" oil on canvas, $500  SOLD

Highland County Hillside II

This painting was done the last morning we were in Highland and is a recognized farm for the area. We got permission to park in the driveway of the lucky man with this view.

Will let you know when the time gets closer with the dates.  24" x 30" oil on canvas, $500.  Email Meg West about this painting.

Highland County Hillside

The second afternoon we all went up to the top of a hillside, through two cow gates, a hole infested pasture, a dry-bed and hiked to tree-shade and a breeze! An adventure for sure . . . here was the view I chose from that spot.  12" x 24" oil on canvas, will be framed,  $300.  SOLD
