Blue Ridge Parkway Series #470   24 x 36  oil    SOLD

The sensory wonder of a sunset or sunrise  over the ocean or in the mountains is a great moment of  thankfulness for and anticipation of another day on this earth.  Natural beauty testifies to the Nature of God.  It shows "the Way";  it draws one into the Divine Presence of Light and Life.  The Constancy, the Faithfulness. and the Glory of God are manifested as the "Son" is magnified to His Creation,  if only we would stop long enough to sense the wonder of the moment.  This painting was sold before it was finished.  Thank you Karen for your appreciation of my work.

Red in the Landscape

 Parkway Series #468  Late Afternoon at Mabrys Mill  12 x 16  oil   $295.

Parkway Series #469  On Golden Pond  12 x 16  oil   SOLD

 Before I paint, I gesso my canvas with bright red gesso in order to get a contrast to the green of most landscapes.  Light coming through Red Leaves and Red Reflections on Abbott Lake spark the creative instinct.  I have to tone down many paintings because of my love of red.
