Air B&B, Floyd, VA


During a very hot spell, David and I went up to 3,000 feet on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Floyd, VA and stayed in this lovely Air B&B. I was so taken by the gorgeous flowers in front of the cottage, I had to paint them. As it turns out, we are trading with the couple for a future time in this lovely spot.
24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed

I am also going back to Floyd this week to participate in The Floyd Center for the Arts, Plein Air Paint Out. Twenty-three artists paint all over the area and come together for an opening at the end, inviting the community with wine & cheese. The great thing is they find you a free place to stay! Will post paintings when I get back.
