Artist In Residence 2022

I had the opportunity to spend a week at Devil's Fork State Park in South Carolina this past

October.  The park is located near Salem on Lake Jocassee which is a beautiful 7500 acre lake

surrounded by mountains.  The goal was to try and capture the essence of the park.  I original-

ly suggested a 2'X3' painting but after spending hours looking around, I settled on a 2'X4' 

painting done in acrylic on stretched canvas.  Mr. Rowdy Harris, Park Manager and staff seemed please with the finished piece.

Bird Series Paintings

I enjoy feeding and photographing birds and decided to do a series of paintings of these de-

lightful little creatures.  The paintings are done in acrylic on both hardboard and canvas.

This is an ongoing series.

This is a new painting in the bird series featuring a Carolina wren eyeing a Painted Lady butterfly while sitting on some cattails.

The painting is 16X22 and done in acrylic on hardboard.  The landscape was from an area near Table Rock State

Park in Upstate South Carolina.  16X20 signed giclee prints are available for $125.  The original painting is also for sale for $1200 framed.

This is the second in the series of bird paintings and features

2 Carolina Wrens sitting on an old stump in the woods.  The painting is 16X20 inches on canvas board and done in acrylic paints.

This painting is another

16X20 on hardboard done

in acrylic with an airbrushed

background.  The main character is a male Gold Finch that has been coming to some sunflowers I planted in the spring and is enjoying the seeds.     

This is the 4th in the series of bird paintings.  I took a photo of this Red-Tailed hawk at the SC aquarium years ago and finally decided to use it with another image from an old farm in NC. 

 

The painting is a 16X20 acrylic on canvas board.

This is the most recent painting in the

bird series.  16X20 acrylic on stretch-

ed canvas.  

The larger bird is a Brown Trasher.  He visits my feeder every once in a while.

Studio 2.jpg

This is my new studio.  Very comfortable with my lazy boy in front of the fireplace.

I also have a unique easel.  The plywood

easel is mounted to an old antique cab-

inet called a hoosier (where I store my

art supplies).  It folds down into a table

where I can work on mounting art.
