Hatteras Sunset

24″ x 36″ Oil on stretched canvas wrap with painted edges

This is a studio painting. I used a friend’s photo for a reference. The photo was taken from Hatteras Island on the outer banks of North Carolina. Hatteras Island offers beautiful sunrises and sunsets. You can see a ferry in the distance.

On the Edge

On the Edge 10x8

10″ x 8″ Oil on panel

I am staying home as much as possible.  This is a plein air painting of the edge of the woods seen from our deck.  The Dogwoods are in bloom now.  We can see back into the woods, but not for long.  The green leaves are filling in.  Take care and stay well.

Church & Monroe

Church & Monroe 11x14

11″ x 14″ Oil on panel

This is one of the lovely homes in Salisbury, NC.  I blocked the painting in on site.  I stopped before it was finished, because I was too cold to continue.  I finished it in the comfort of my studio pretending to be onsite.

Mingo Falls

Mingo Falls 36x24

36″x 24″ Oil on gallery wrap canvas with painted edges

This is an oil painting painted in my studio from a photo reference.  Mingo Falls was near our campsite in Cherokee, NC.  I found it impossible for me to actually capture its’ sparkling beauty.

Park Azaleas

Park Azaleas 14x11

14″ x 11″ Oil on Linen Panel

This is a path in Fisher Park, Greensboro, NC.  I started it on site at an Albert Handell workshop.  I tweaked the painting a bit at my studio in Salisbury trying to remember Albert’s teaching.  The park was just amazingly beautiful last week.  It was hard to decide what to paint.

Coastal Path


36″ x 48″ Oil on gallery wrap with painted edges

This is a North Carolina coastal scene.  It is a commission based on a smaller sold painting.  I really enjoyed revisiting this scene and tweaking it to make it work in this larger format.  I hope to paint more commissions.

Hurley Park Late Summer


12″ x 9″ Oil on Panel

A plein air painting from Hurley Park in Salisbury.  It was tweaked a bit in my studio.  I find that I sometimes need to revisit a painting to adjust the values and colors to my liking.
