Parkway Road


Painted this from a photograph from a few years ago on the Blue Ridge Parkway, can't remember exactly how far south we were. If you have ever driven the parkway, you know that you don't just go through large mountains but also farmland. 24" x 48", oil on canvas, framed  SOLD  Thanks Mary & Greg!

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!  
16" x 20" oil on canvas, framed  $395    On HOLD

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!
