Into the Gorge is an autumn look at the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia as seen from The Blue Ridge Parkway. Rock Castle Gorge is a sight I have been to countless times with my husband, Clyde Kessler. This is the main site where he studies bird and butterfly populations. There is an energetic motion in the sky that I am especially proud of. There is nothing like the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains!
The painting measures 9" x 12" and is in a composite frame.
I take care to carefully reproduce my images but colors may vary according to how a computer is set up. This looks accurate on my Apple.

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 thirty-two states, Canada, Germany, Russia, England, Switzerland, 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!
