Sequachee Valley #1


~~Sequachee Valley #1~~
This is a place called Sequachee Valley in Tennessee. When I visited this area before we moved to Tennessee, my realtor took me to see a house in Sequachee Valley. This was the view from the front porch. I fell in love with the house, but unfortunately it was out in the middle of nowhere and I was afraid if I got a job in downtown Chattanooga it would be an extremely long commute. I still dream of the house and this scene and maybe one day my husband and I will build our dream log home in Sequatchie Valley. Wow, such a beautiful place to be...imagine sitting on the front porch and seeing this scene every morning with a nice fresh cup of coffee! Original and Prints available.

This painting is from a scene in Upstate NY, on the way from Herkimer to Middleville. It was a rainy, crapy, cold, icy, wonderful day! I was a very brrrrrrrrrr cold place to be, but I sure enjoyed it! Original 11" x 14". Prints Available

~~Nick's Lake~~
Another one from Upstate NY. I took the photo at Nick's Lake in the Adirondack Mountains while on a day trip with my brother Woody. It was a sunny, warm day and the Adirondacks were in full summer glory. Except for a few black flies, it was a beautiful place to go. Original painting 12"x18", done with soft pastels on Wallis paper. Original and Prints available.
~~Getaway Cabin~~
What can I say. Deep in the woods to a little rustic cabin is always a beautiful place to go. Original painting is 9"x12", soft pastels on sanded paper. Prints available.

Autumn Field - SOLD


I just love Upstate NY, where the days are often gloomy. The fall and winter landscapes are so gorgeous and most of my paintings try to capture that beauty. I took the original photo for this painting driving the back roads from Ilion to New Hartford, NY. The day was hazy and cool; the perfect day for a drive. As I approached this scene, it suddenly captured all of my attention and I knew instantly it would be a wonderful painting of a beautiful place to go.
