Mountain Path


 I just found out that Hot Cakes in Charlottesville is closing by the 1st of November. I was going to have an art show there this December. The owners have been VERY supportive to so many local artists over dozens of years, and like other artists, I am deeply sorry to see them go,  . . . 
for their gourmet food, fine coffee, and fabulous atmosphere.  
Thank you, Kieth & Lisa! 

The above painting is from two combined photographs and painted in the studio. It is 24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed, $850, available.

Dolly Sods, Fall

 

    

We went up to Dolly Sods for the day about ten days ago and spent the night in Highland County at a friend's place. David hiked and I got to paint on the Bear Rocks trail about a mile down the path. I am also working on a painting from a photograph that is larger from a different view. 18" x 24" oil on canvas, framed, $475.  SOLD

Blue Ridge Parkway Rain Coming

 


The Blue Ridge Parkway is north of Floyd and this is from the overlook near there. While I was painting about a month ago, a storm came across the valley, I was painting as fast as I could . . . but the funny thing was, a storm BEHIND me approached and drenched my canvas, palette, and me in no time at all!
24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, will be at the Crozet Art Festival, $1,250   SOLD
