White Hall Farm, Fall

Eileen and I painted up in White Hall last week where these two abandoned buildings are. The late afternoon was wonderful light but then it got too dark and changed on us. These are small buildings and the shadow on the roofs made them look bright blue.  11" x 17", framed, $300.  SOLD

Chile's Peach Orchard, Fall

Just got back from painting this at our beloved Chile's Peach Orchard, right down the road from my house. Everywhere the leaves are so wonderful that I am determined to go out each day until they are all gone! I could paint a dozen right from that one spot, just by turning a bit for a new composition . . . I am at the railroad tracks and turning around I look down the hillside, maybe tomorrow I will show you :-)  16" x 20" $350, framed. SOLD

Blue Ridge View II

This is a smaller version of the 12" x 48" I posted last week.

So, it did rain a bit, but we found shelter under my van-rear-door and kept painting.  8" x 24" oil on MDF board, framed, $275  SOLD

Mirador Farm

This was painted last week with my friend Eileen. We had gone back to this same site a week before and I started a really big one, 36" x 48" but VERTICAL for a commission. We were thrilled to see that the bales where still there, and I wanted to do a panoramic view of this farm. Mirador farm is where the "Gibson Girls" lived way back in the 20's I think. (Sorry that the photo has a shadow on the right hand side.) This is hanging at the show at Westminster Canterbury for the month of November.  12" x 48" $550. SOLD
