Angie's View II & III

This is for Leighton who asked me to paint this view as a smaller painting for her birthday present! The original was done this past spring for Angie (June 2 post), so I am keeping that name. The wind got strong after I did the first one so I changed my spot a bit, plus the light changes and you can never paint two painting exactly the same. Once she picks hers, I will hang the other one at my show this weekend at Hot Cakes.   12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed  $300. Leighton is taking the top painting, thanks

Dolly Sods, Monongahela National Forest, WV

 My husband and I went to Dolly Sods last week and camped, hiked, and I got to paint two paintings there. This one is on Beaver Dam Trail, about half a mile in, and the trail goes down to Red Creek. We try to go each year and next time I hope to paint more. The wild blueberries and huckleberries turn this wonderful bright magenta and orange, which is why we go in the fall. Also great place for birding. 16" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $395.  SOLD  thanks Debbie!

Smith Mountain Lake III

Here is a small painting that I will give as a "thank you" to the owners of the house we stayed in.  This is looking from their deck off the bedroom in the morning that we left. 8" x 8" oil on MDF board, framed.
We just got back from going hiking, camping and painting up at Dolly Sods for two days . . . but too dark to photograph the paintings. And tomorrow I am off to paint in Lexington for two days at the Paint-Out at the Nelson Gallery. Should be a ton of fun . . . will report all about that soon.
