Original DaVinci Piaffe Horse

Thank you to the collector; "Blue Ridge Blue Sheep Cloud"

This painting was sold as a print here: 


Catherine Twomey, "Blue Ridge Blue Sheep Cloud" 30.000" x 21.375", print

Painted live along Skyline Drive in the Piedmont Area of Virginia, in Shenandoah National Park. Made me feel like an angel as the warm summer breezes overcame my easel and me. I loved the patterns; the repetition of shapes and most of all, the color of these mountains. See the sheep cloud to the upper right? My eye finally found him after I thought I was done, but he's welcome to stay.

"Liquid Blue Ridge Sunset" oil on board 

This small but mighty, luminous and liquid oil painting is the ideal accent for a special area in a home. It was painted plein air - outside on a mountain above Asheville, NC, obviously as I watched the sun go down.

The painting has luscious layers of paint which can be seen in the enlargement. I was deeply inspired by the multiple layers of color that changed by the minute.
