Along the Banks of the James

                                                James River Series   12 x 16  oil   $295.

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.

James River Arch Bridge

 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.
