This is a painting I did after seeing a Jed Dorsey video. I love life long learning and I am always interested in how others accomplish their magic on canvas. This "sun burst" technique is fun and creates an incredible glow in the background. It's always about the Light!!!

This painting and the next five are a diversion from my Parkway series. Sometimes I am asked to take a break from my beloved mountains and to paint a series of landscapes in other parts of the country. These paintings are of our state capital, Richmond, Virginia from the James River. In the hustle and bustle of every day life, downtown businesses and their patrons forget that there is another world surrounding them. Bringing the beauty and peace into a high rise bank was the objective of this client who knows well the effect of paintings on interior design and even more so, the well being of those who work and visit within the interior space.

I have found these bridges to be named and renamed so I am not really sure what I am looking at. North Bank Trail Head, Buttermilk Loop trail, Pedestrian Only bridge, Robert E. Lee bridge and Porterfield Tyler Memorial bridge. If anyone can help me, I would appreciated info.!!!

Richmond from the James 16 x 20 oil SOLD
This iconic concrete bridge was built in 1919. It is the oldest bridge over the James in Richmond and it is a railroad crossing for trains going north and south. As I continue the Richmond series I am finding the "sense of place" usually involves a bridge.
