Stonewall By The Garden

22"x 30", Acrylic on paper In the summer of 1993, I painted a series of 25 paintings to honor my step-mother's magnificent garden on our farm. I exhibited the series at a gallery in the spring of 1994, and my father bought this painting. I am certain he chose this one, not only for the [...]

Josie

22"x 30", Watercolor Other than a few portraits of my boys, this is the only portrait I have ever painted. I have added Josie to the Tribute To Venus category because I can think of no other woman who so embodied the lovely attributes of the feminine Venus. Her name was Anna Josephine Timbers, and [...]

Appalachian Landscape Paintings

  I grew up in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. The Appalachian Trail runs right along the top of the Blue Ridge. The mountains of Appalachia are some of the oldest in the world. I always under estimated the age of these mountains just because they were not as notorious as the [...]

Rain Coming

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I owned a beautiful, old stone house once with a big front porch. I loved to sit on that porch in summer and watch the summer storms blowing in from the west. The sky would change colors, the trees would begin to dance in the wind and I would get excited [...]

Fall Splendor

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" When we behold the magnificent, colorful display of the turning leaves in fall, one has to consider the Creator is a true artist. How ironic that dying leaves exhibit such fall splendor. Perhaps nature shares the message of a beautiful mystery in change, in dying, that we can embrace without [...]

New Moon Fireflies

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" One of the most wonderful spectacles of  Appalachian summer evenings are the fireflies. This was a scene one summer night off my back porch when the fireflies came out by the thousands to light up the field. It was especially beautiful under the new moon, thus the painting was called [...]

Appalachian Landscapes

Most people appreciate a landscape painting, such as the beauty found in Appalachian landscapes. We all like to be reminded of the beauty and wonder of the world around us. We all need to be reminded of our deep, intrinsic connection to the natural world. Artists journey to the depths of this relationship when studying [...]

Passing Green

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. [...]

Lost in Blue

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" This is one of the flower paintings from the magnificent garden at our farm in Virginia. The beautiful delphiniums stand out in the crowd, and it is easy to become lost in blue.   Giclee Prints 9x 12 $108.00 USD 14x 20 $280.00 USD 18x 24 $432.00 USD 22x 28 $616.00 [...]
