John's River Gorge Blowing Rock Oil Painting

John's River Gorge (the view from the wine wall)
12 x 36 oil on canvas  

This view is about 1/4 mile walk from the horse show. I had been going to the show for 3 years before someone told me about it. We walked the dogs there after the show. Took lots of photos and none could capture it. I decided to take a small canvas one evening, but only had a 12 x 36 primed to go. So I took the large canvas. I began the painting, as the sun and clouds moved, the scene changed by the minute. After the first session, the weather was uncooperative, rain every evening. Finally, the afternoon of the last day the sun shone. I left everything up and headed over to "The Wall" for another session with the gorge. I finished up a few details later at the studio.

Roses on Split Rail Fence Oil painting 8 x 10

This painting is of a garden near Louisburg, NC. It is an old homestead which has been filled with old roses. The garden is open to the public one day a year - Mother's Day. The old roses do great here in the south. They are more disease resistant and they are done blooming by June, so we can stay inside in the AC through the heat of the summer and the flowers are gone before the Japanese beetles arrive.
