House In Blacksburg
Painting - Oil/canvas
House in Blacksburg is one of my favorite whimsical studies in light and shade. I greatly modified the light effect that I saw to create a surreal atmosphere. I often elaborate on color schemes or invent my own. I mostly work with light effects I like and enhance certain colors and textures to make the work lively and unique to me.
The colors of light and shade are most evident in the early morning and evening. The magic hour truly is the magic hour and I never tire of trying to capture the wonderful warm/cool effect that makes objects look like they are dissolving into the end of the day. In the morning light objects look like they are coming out of the light the way a magician appears in a puff of smoke.
I like to work with evening light the most but I do have some morning studies. The dissolution of form in The Blue Ridge Mountains is incredible. What a symphony of color! The painting is on stretched canvas and has a strip frame.

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, 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!
