Morning Color Dance is an intense oil pastel painting of morning colors on the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love to watch the colors of light and shade change throughout each day and I especially like to watch the colors change on the mountain ridges. The pastel is loose on a cardboard backing wrapped in acetate.
There is nothing like living in the mountains of Virginia! If I look out my back window a mountain range is directly across from my neighborhood. The mountains are at my doorstep and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else! I love the beach but if I had to pick between living at the beach and living in the mountains, I would choose the mountains!

I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
