This particular sunset with the fluffy cloud formations is both colorful and energetic. I love the sunsets here in the blue ridge. The mountain backdrop provides a constantly changing array of colors and textures. The paint on this impasto painting is thick and the brushwork creates a complicated surface pattern. The paint was initially put down in thin layers and then built up to a thick surface. The atmospheric effect is both colorful and peaceful to the eye.
Mushroom Clouds is an oil painting on masonite and is framed in a silver colored metal frame. Buyer has the option of taking the painting without the frame and taking $25.00 off of the price. I have my masonite cut at a lumber yard and I always remind them that the cut has to be perfect. This time they slipped up a little and I didn"t catch it before I started painting. The painting is slightly small and if the buyer is not careful it can come out at the top of the frame. It should be professionally framed but can be displayed as is.

I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene.

I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for twenty years as Assistant professor. I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.
I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum. Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class 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 thirty-one states,Washington D.C., Canada, Germany, Russia, England, Switzerland, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art!
