Road To The Ranch

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I did this landscape painting of the road to the ranch long before I ever lived in the Southwest. I used to make trips out there almost every years to visit friends. On one of those trips I got a clear sense that  some day I would live there. It took [...]

Down The Hill

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" How can one not love autumn when all the trees turn such amazing colors? One crisp, fall day I went for a long walk on our Virginia farm. I was coming down the hill from the barn, and the trees lining the road were just on fire with oranges and red. [...]

Summer Storm

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I went to visit an artist once who wanted to show some paintings in my gallery. She said they were too big to bring in her car, and if I would come out to see them, she would make me lunch. I was always ready for an adventure. When I turned [...]

Blue Horizon Bougainvillea

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" Over Christmas in 1995, I took my two sons to the island of Tobago. It is truly a Robinson Crusoe island with a forest reserve on the entire north side of the island which is mostly uninhabitable. Everything and everyone happens on the small southern end of the island. This was [...]

Road to La Saracina

We passed by this enchanting, long road to La Saracina late in the day, and promptly turned around to check it out. It's an old, country home turned B & B, and the setting was so charming and wonderful. We arrived just in time for a scrumptious, home cooked dinner in the grand hall with [...]

Paved in Periwinkle

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" The back roads of Virginia in summer were lush with wildflowers. This one was paved in periwinkle. I kept telling myself to get a wildflower book so I could learn what all these beauties were called, but I never did. I just painted them. Now I wish I had. Next time. [...]

Autumn Field

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" I am looking at this painting right now. It sits on the wall to the right of my desk. I remember the day I sketched this scene while out walking. It was a chilly, fall day. I had been walking down this road you see in the painting before turning into [...]

After the Rain

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" We welcome summer rains in Virginia to wash away all the sticky, humid air. After the rain, everything is fresh and clear, and all the colors come back to life. And the rain smells so good. Unframed. Original Painting After the Rain $490.00 Giclee Prints 7"x 10" $70.00 12"x 16" $192.00 [...]

Spring Bliss

Aqua oil on canvas, 22"x28" I went to visit an old friend one gorgeous, spring day, and as I turned into the driveway, I was in awe of the scene before me. The entire drive was lined with dogwood trees overflowing with white blossoms. What more can I say. This was pure spring bliss at [...]
