Blue Ridge Morning
Painting - Oil/canvas
Blue Ridge Morning is a peaceful, sensuous look at a Blue Ridge Vista. This is a calm, serene view of the beginning of the day in the gorgeous Blue Ridge.
I have lived in Southwest Virginia my adult life with Clyde Kessler, a great guy from Ferrum, VA.
He has introduced me to all these beautiful vistas he loves and tries to protect in a number of different ways. He has lead countless hikes and hawk watches since the seventies and continually researches the area for bird and butterfly populations. His discovery of the endangered Mitchel Satyr in 1996 is considered to be the most important wildlife find in the second half of the twentieth century in Virginia. He works with the US Forest Service to monitor wildlife in the Spring and Summer. I never tire of looking at this beautiful region of Virginia and I try to add my emotional response to the paintings with my unique use of color and texture. One of my teachers in college said my colors sing. I would like to think that is true.
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 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 will be appearing 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-one states, Canada, Germany, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art.
