Built in 1895, the Stovall Mill Bridge is a one-lane covered bridge spanning Chickamauga Creek in the North Georgia mountains. This painting was created for a family member and is 24×18 oil on canvas.
If you are not there to hear them, do they make any sound? That is the question evoked by my recent painting commissioned for an interior designer’s client. While the crashing waves may be suggested visually, they are but a whisper in the vastness of the open ocean, and even less so if we are not there to hear them. Large format 48×40 oil on canvas.
Commissioned as a gift for a recently married couple to commemorate the location in which they became engaged in Curacao. 24×18 oil on canvas. SOLD.
Sometimes, I tell myself that whenever I leave someplace special — be it the beach, the mountains or wherever — that place ceases to exist once I’ve left. It somehow makes my leaving it behind a bit easier. Of course, I know the waves keep rolling up onto the beach, or, as in the case of this recently completed painting, the brook keeps babbling away. 48×36 oil on canvas.
Deep, lush greens spilling into a sunlit mountain stream. A rock here and there. These are the elements of my most recent oil painting, “Oasis.” 40×30.
Another in my ongoing “I’ve-been-missing-the-ocean” series of ocean-themed paintings. This one called “Raging.” 36×36 oil on canvas. SOLD (Thank You!)
I’ve been missing the ocean during this time of Corona-related travel restrictions. The next best thing is painting ocean scenes. This one I’m calling “Breaking,” intending to capture the “motion of the ocean.” 40×30.
Another butterfly-featured painting, this one 18×18 oil-on-canvas.
I’ve experimented with something a bit different for me: two canvases side-by-side to extend the image over both. Each painting works individually, I think, as well. Inspired by a trip to the Maine coast, which has served as inspiration for many of my water-themed paintings. Each canvas is 30×40.
