A Pair is a colorful study of two bartlett pears. I am especially pleased with the color contrast in this work and the sensuous surface. I love to work with complementary colors and patterns. The pears are positioned so that they seem to turn in on each other in a maze of lines and squares that take on a type of movement that I work hard to achieve in still life paintings.
I always try to energize everyday objects by the way I paint them. One of my favorite artists is Paul Cezanne and I especially like his still lifes. The compositions are perfect examples of thoughtful spacing and the colors sing out in every one of them.

I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for a twenty years as Assistant professor. I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.I received many compliments on my course curriculum.
I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013.
I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-four states, Canada, Germany, Russia, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art!
