The Backyard Creek, Willow Wisp Farm (sold)

6x8, oil on canvas panel--Willow Wisp Farm, a delightful place in Fairview, NC, brought many nationally known artists to teach painting workshops. I attended several there and was so sorry to see it close. Many of my paintings have come from that area where I made sketches and took photos.

Red Roof

5x7, oil on canvas panel--This was a simple little building, but I think it makes a great painting subject. Even though I paint many "pretty scenes", I really enjoy the out of the way, forsaken, and neglected places. To me, picturesque is not always best.

The Spring House, Pearson Farm, NC

6x8, oil on canvas panel-- Sorry for the odd format in typing. My shift key (among others) does not work. I have ordered a new keyboard which will arrive next weekend. The good news is that I get to keep my laptop at home and limp along with some posts and photos. This painting will be on eBay tonight, starting at 49.99.

Late Afternoon, Smithtown Road (sold)

6x8, oil on canvas panel
This is a poor photo, taken inside with lights, as we have had such bad weather for taking photos outside. I just wanted to get something up since it has been several days of no posting. I shall try again today to get a better one. My computer is also being "bad", and I am going to make the decision to have it fixed or buy a new one in the next few days. I have lots of paintings to post, and hope to get it done in the next few days, if all goes well. Please continue to check back.

Union County Pasture, NC (sold)

oil on canvas panel
I often paint in Union County, NC, because I enjoy rural landscape scenes. Union county is the fastest growing county in NC, and I believe, the 4th fastest growing county in the nation. I wonder how long it will be before there are few rural scenes to paint.
Most of my adult life was spent in Marietta, GA, in Cobb county which, in the 80's, was the fastest growing county in the nation. I taught high school art in an excellent independent school, and it grew by leaps and bounds during that time. M-m-m, I wonder if there is a pattern here.
