Recently finished this piece looking down towards Asheville from the eastern mountains. A stunning evening as the lights popped out. 12X16’ on Canson canvas board.
A year of joyful art making, experimentation and an exciting new direction. Thank you to the supporters, collectors, encouragers and laugh-makers who inspired me along the way! Happy Holidays and a 2019 with less drama and more truth-telling.
There’s something strangely satisfying about starting a painting with a graduated tint. This is going to be the Blue Ridge Mountains as night descends on Asheville. It’s 12X16” on Canson board.
I am so grateful to the collector of this work from my Manifesto Series, entitled “"Manifesto 5.0: The Gulf, Sarasota" which is going to a new home in California. To view additional original art, please visit:

There is something so satisfying about working with someone who has commissioned your work. The gift of having their trust to complete a vision is priceless. This work began with a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Grandfather Mountain area. I hiked extensively, capturing reference photos and a good sense of what the mountain was about. Just this morning, the commissioner commented:
It’s beautiful and we love it! It’s going to look great in our living room.
Thank you so much.
Grateful, thrilled and touched by the whole process.
This work is moving along! It is so thoroughly enjoyable to see the vision come alive, and the paint is cooperating. Being almost August in North Carolina, however, it takes a while to dry. In this image the sun has not yet been rendered - the mountain layers will "tell" me how to show it. So grateful for this commission and support.
Sunsets are irresistible. There's something about the ritual of gathering along the sea as the first hints of the day's end appear. Every second, every minute and the sky comes alive. The colors deepen, the reflections suggest watercolors and sterling silver and transitions.
This is an original acrylic pour combined with handpainting. It is 12 X 12" and ready to hang.
