Ridgeland Winter Beauty is a beautiful sunset in the Ridgeland mountains of Virginia. This is a winter scene where the pungent sunset colors enhance the blues of the mountains and browns of the trees.
My husband, Clyde Kessler, is a well-known naturalist in the New River Valley and his studies of birds and butterflies take him to many mountain regions of North Carolina and Virginia. His discovery of the endangered Mitchel Satyr butterflyin 1998 is considered to be one of the most important wildlife finds of the second half of the twentieth century in Virginia. I have learned a lot from him.
The painting is on canvas panel and is in a solid wood molded 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 thirty states,Washington D.C., Canada, Germany, Russia, England, Switzerland, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art!
