Maury River

For my birthday we spent a few nights at a wonderful Air B&B called Heartstone Lodge, in Lexington VA and I painted at a few spots on the Maury River, which this is one of them. I changed a tiny bit since then, it's 12" x 16" oil on canvas, framed, $275

I haven't posted for a while but have good news, my son Ben & Britt gave birth to TWIN GIRLS! All is well and they came home yesterday!

Chile's Peach Orchard

 Painted this two weeks ago with my friend Jenny, it was cold and windy but we stuck to it. There were a few freezes afterward that killed the blooms. Chile's has a variety of peach trees and they bloom at different times, so I am hoping to get outside again to paint them!

Humpback Mountain from Chiswell Winery

Painted this recently from Chiswell Winery in Greenwood, just down the road from me. Humpback Mountain is one of our favorite hikes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, about six miles south of Afton, where the parkway starts. Chiswell Winery is new and is owned by Chile's Peach Orchard. They put in the vines last summer but already had vines and wine near Charlottesville. The bales are left from the fall and I like them in the composition.  16" x 40" oil on canvas, framed  $695.  SOLD   Thanks, Donna Jean!

White Hall Bales


White Hall bales was started on location late summer and finished in the studio. The funny thing was that the guy who baled them, came back right when I started my painting and he started moving them! So I had to place the bales on the painting really FAST! He apologized afterward. 

24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed,  SOLD    Thanks Paul & Erin!
