"Southern Glow"

One of my favorite things about living in the "South" is the flora. I look forward each year to the time when the Crape-Myrtles bloom. They reward us with several weeks of beautiful blossoms ranging in colors from white to pale pinks to vivid reds to lavenders.

"Ancestral"




Ancient apple trees still survive along the Blue Ridge Parkway here in North Carolina. Their structures are sometimes contorted creating beautiful patterns against the sky.

"Blue Ridge Pastures"

The mountain temperatures remained in the low 70's during the morning as I painted.  I had walked a short distance from where I parked my car along the Blue Ridge Parkway and discovered this lovely vista.  I let this "paint itself" as I enjoyed creating in the open air.
