Lavender Bliss

  • July 11 - 2019

Featured at Bastille Day Show in Atlanta at Huff Harrington on July 13th

This is a scene I enjoy daily during June living here in Provence. Lavender is certainly bewitching... so colorless up close and so vibrantly colorful in the distance, it is a joy to paint.

Cortona Impressions I

  • May 18 - 2018

The numerous times of painting in Crotona, Italy have been so rewarding to me. To paint on site and realize that there has been life and energy, centuries old, that have occupied the spaces you are painting. The beautiful and colorful rooftops, as you can imagine, captured me at first sight.

Pointe D'Esny

  • March 29 - 2018

Mauritius Island in February is mighty hot and humid, especially in the middle of the day when I wanted to paint.
