While riding on the streets of Rome, Italy, I spotted the blazing color of the tree , and the colorful flag flying outside what may have been a bedroom window. This is the way many Roman city residents have their being. Something makes me think that inside these walls there is celebration, laughter, and good food to be enjoyed! What story do you hear being told in this watercolor painting?
These two old trucks stay parked alongside each other on the gravel path having taken care of their owners needs over the years. The nostalgia of the scene is what drew me in and made me want to capture it all in a watercolor painting. Maybe you have an old truck like these "Best Friends" that needs immortalizing!

A good many of us will be headed to the beach this summer! Part of the attraction are the wonderfully varied beach front properties that are for rent. Hearing the sound of the ocean waves in the background is so appealing! "Beach Beauty" is an acrylic seascape painting that makes me want to get my toes in the sand! Wouldn't you want to spend time in this place!!!
" Dream Cottage" is my version of an ideal spot to enjoy the beach! I can feel the sand between my toes as I get up from the wicker chair for a morning walk! Small spaces have always made me feel cozy and protected! I grew up in a smaller mountain ranch home in the mountains of North Carolina! If there were such a place like" Dream Cottage" , I would be quite content there! This seascape, acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas is yours to enjoy!

Getting back out to paint en plein air has been a treat after a cold, rainy Georgia winter! "McFarlane Park" is an oil landscape painting of an old building on the property of McFarlane Park in Marietta, Ga. The lighting and shadows are beautiful there both morning and evening as they fall across the outbuildings there. What a joy it was to paint start this painting in such a beautiful place not too far from my home!
Autumn of the year is harvesting time! My family and I always love to venture outdoors to enjoy the colorful bounty seen this time of year! Seeing the old porch scene, pumpkins, and rough hewn wood, reminds me of my childhood growing up in the mountains of North Carolina! My inspiration for "The Gathering" came from fond memories and from several tubes of watercolor paint!
Occasionally a painting will have to get a makeover! "Natural Beauty" is an oil on canvas landscape painting of a mountain area that I love to visit! There are so many gravel roads to walk with breathtaking views of trees and grassy fields! Walking in the woods is like getting a mental makeover!
One can almost hear music wafting through the art gallery as gallery patrons are drawn to contemplate the painter's intention. In the watercolor painting, Art and Music, two of the patrons seem to have a serious appreciation for the experience while another is somewhat detached. Don't judge too soon! The handsome gentleman could be looking for the artist's website on his IPhone. If you've never attended an opening reception at an art gallery, don't miss the opportunity! In most cities gallery owners often introduce new artists with wine and cheese gatherings!

The beauty of the low country is unique in the quality of light, the charming little seaside towns, and the beautiful boats which move about on the water. "Sailing to Beaufort" is a seascape, oil painting on canvas, depicting the journey by boat to Beaufort, S.C., on the intercoastal waterway which flows to the Atlantic Ocean! I am so ready to visit this area again!
Charm and Grace are desirable qualities in the female. While some men prefer a gutsy, modern type woman, it is my feeling when a woman with gentle qualities enters a room, men take notice. Mind you these coveted qualities are present in men as well! My oil painting is a depiction of what charm and grace might look like!
