Porterfield Lane, Rt 700

Wanting to paint a few barns, I found this spot below Mountain Lake on Rt 700, and met a few of the Porterfield family who came over to see what I was up to. I changed it a bit by straightened the foreground barn but all-in-all, happy with how it turned out. 12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $300. SOLD

Above Blacksburg, VA

I spent the past week at Mountain Lake Biological Station near Blacksburg, VA and this is the view from Rt 700 going up the mountain. I did a larger painting at this spot too but it's not finished. It was an artist-in-residence with over a dozen artist from all around (two from Australia) doing artwork related to the natural setting of this beautiful location. We were among 30 some students and professors at University of Virginia, I felt lucky to be invited and thoroughly enjoyed it.
 Here are just two photos to give a feel of the location, Lewis is the science lab and main building and the pond, so wonderful!
The painting is 12" x 48" oil on canvas, framed  $550.
