Sleep Bear Dunes National Shoreline, Michagan

This is a commission for a couple who live in Virginia but visit Glen Arbor in the summer time. They asked me to paint this scene once they heard I have relatives who live there and had painted Sleeping Bear Dunes a few summers ago. It was fun to take me back to this wonderful beach. Also a shout-out to my cousins Jandy and Ceci! 30" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $1,150. SOLD, Thanks Linda and Pete!

Bucks Elbow, Crozet

Went back up this afternoon to finish this painting that I started earlier this week, it's way up on the mountain behind our house on private property looking east to White Hall. What was interesting is the trees up top are not leafing out yet but I could see the mountains below with the beginning of the spring green creeping up the mountains. Beautiful day to be outside painting!  30" x 40" oil on canvas, framed $1,275,  SOLD Thanks Joe and Linda!
