"Summer Morning at Reynolda"

 Where Lake Katherine used to be is this wetland with a narrow stream flowing through.  I tried to capture the intensity of the bright morning light.

"Historic Odd Fellows Cemetery"

A pleasant morning painting in this old cemetery here in Winston-Salem while volunteers were giving tours to acquaint people with it's history.  A small group of dedicated citizens are working hard to rescue the site from the ravages of time and neglect.

"Foothills Farmland"

 Gently rolling hills, a ploughed field ready for planting, woodsy areas and  a red dirt bank along with a creek barely visible at the left side of the field depicts an imaginary landscape very typical of this area of the country where I grew up.

"Thoughtful Morning"

Still experimenting with the style of the "Luminist" movement.  Calm, peaceful, thoughtful...once again imagining.

"Lavender Sky"

 Continuing with the Hudson River School period of art, this painting leans toward the "Luminist" influence.  Again an imagined landscape.  I had great fun conjuring the glow in this one.

"Sunlit Rockface"

 I've always enjoyed studying the many different periods and styles of art.  This painting is rendered in my interpretation of the style of the Hudson River School artists. It is an imaginary landscape with the light being that of late afternoon right before dusk.
