Project Description

Nature has become my muse where colors and texture play a major part in my work.

I love what Rembrandt said, “Choose only one master – Nature.”

The French Broad River Connection

Asheville’s French Broad River in the early spring offers me more than just a landscape to paint. It is full of history and many stories back in time.

The Golden Pond

It was a beautiful sunny day as I watched a family of ducks cruising around this serene pond. Although I forgot to add the ducks, I was glad I chose to paint the reflection of the trees and sky.
