"The New River September 2018"

Another beautiful summer day along the New River in Watauga County, North Carolina.  I enjoyed painting the patterns of growth on the hills across the river as well as the joe-pye weeds and goldenrod in the foreground.  The sky was painted with a brush, the rest with a palette knife.

"Soft Warm Morning"

In this painting, contrasting warm and cool colors, I've tried to show a softer light. The palette was inspired by some mature hydrangea blossoms that had reached that beautiful stage where the colors were changing to rosy, rusty and green hues.  Painted entirely with a palette knife.
