Blue Ridge Autumn
Painting - Oil/canvas
Blue Ridge Autumn is a sumptuous color feast of this gorgeous mountain region in Fall. The warm/cool color contrast sparkles and lights up the work.
WATERMARKS WILL NOT BE ON PRINTS
Flower Fall is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time flowers that looked like they were falling began to appear so I emphasized that motion and added a few more flowers. I am especially pleased with the subtle contrast in this one that presents a serene mood.

My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene. My paintings were in two group shows on Broadway and my biography is included in The Original Marquis Who's Who in America.
I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for a twenty years as Assistant professor. I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.
I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum. Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013.
I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-four states, Canada, Germany, Russia, England and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art!
I have over thirty years experience shipping my artwork with no returns - just compliments!
