Mountain and Peach Blossom


Another Chile's Peach Orchard from when they were in bloom last month. I really love the mountain behind these trees, so just focused on those elements plus the sky. These are the mountains that are right by my house and I see year-round on my walks. The low part is Jarmans Gap which the Appalachain Trail goes through, and we hike sometimes.  12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed  $300

Coronavirus Therapy: Painting IV & V


Chile's Peach Bloom IV, 6" x 12" oil on canvas, $125


Chile's Peach Bloom V, 6" x 12" oil on canvas, $125

Two versions that I did one day when the trees were full of bloom, looking in different directions. I am a member of two art coops, the Crozet Depot, and C-ville Arts in Charlottesville, so I wanted one for each. Now they are both closed until June, but plenty outside to keep me painting!

Coronavirus Therapy: III


Chile's Peach Orchard this spring has been so gorgeous, I really tried to get out almost every day! This one I think I actually painted first, so they are out of order, which I don't think really matters. I was with my friend Chloe that day, looking east to the mountains.  11" x 14" oil on canvas, framed, $225   This painting is available @ our Charlottesville Coop, C-ville Arts which now has an online shop https://cville-arts.square.site/https://cville-arts.square.site/  SOLD

Coronavirus Therapy: Painting I


I know I haven't posted in a long time, with all that has been going on, I am guessing we all have been preoccupied! My two weapons of defense are to paint and to do yard work, both of which I have been seriously involved with. I hope you all are well, staying home and finding your way through this new world of ours! The peaches are no longer in bloom, but I got out several times with friends to paint the glorious BLOOM! A small one here, 8" x 8" oil on canvas, framed. (NFS: I am trading this with an artist friend.)
