Ivy, Virginia

Painted this for a friend, Beth who will be moving to this spot this year in Ivy, Virginia. The sun was out and a beautiful day to capture it. The photo on the bottom was taken in the sun and the other in the shade back at home. Interesting how different they look, and two different cameras!

Happy New Year! I had a great 2016 and hope you all did as well.

This was painted this past fall when I went with friends for a long weekend in Highland County, and stayed at our friend Patti's place. It was early morning when the sky was warm, and the weather held out for us the whole time. 12" x 16" oil on canvas, framed $250  SOLD

I will post my 2017 plans once they are worked out, but we do have a few adventures up our sleeves! Stay tuned! Our son Ben is off today to New Zealand for three months with lots of fly fishing to be done.
