Painting - Oil/canvas
Burning Shore is another of my small gem series. My family spent our summers at the shore and I am not happy if I don't get to the ocean once a year. This evening shore scene has an intense color contrast that I think is very much like the color achievements of Van Gogh who I am often compared to. I call it Burning Shore because of the strong color contrast of the warm and cool colors on the water. The orange and pinks of the sky give the the ocean such a vibrant look that it is almost like the water is on fire. The burning does not refer to a negative experience, but, rather a positive reaction to the wonders of evening light which I think everyone enjoys.
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.
