Reflections Gallery show

I just came across this photo of some of my plein air paintings featured at Reflections Gallery in Chattanooga, TN. The photo isn't high resolution so clicking on the image will show the paintings 'grainy'. All are 8"x10" oil, painted en plein air, alla prima, in and near Tunnel Hill, GA. Contact me at for information or availability.

Fall at Fort Keys revisited

On this day, November 20th, last year I painted this 8"x10" oil, en plein air, alla prima. Several people asked if I had "tweeked" the foliage colors. I usually reply that I don't have to exaggerate Nature's coloring...I just have to see it with an artist's eye. The accompaning photograph shows an almost identical coloring in adjacent trees this year.
Contact me for purchase at The price is $85 including shipping.

Life of a Tree

11"x14" oil on linen panel, painted en plein air, alla prima, on November 6th (completed at 11:30) - $160 including shipping - contact me for purchase. Sandra and I painted at Mountain Cove Farm on this warm, breezy November day. The 1800+ acres were ablaze with the glory that is Autumn. Evergreens poked their heads through the warm red, orange and yellow hues and the mountains were shrouded early with a lavender mist.

Sandra and I set up our easels in her front yard on Wednesday afternoon. It was simply a gorgeous day with Autumn blazing all around us. Looking directly across the road, this small stand of trees caught my eye. I had seen them dozens of times before, but in looking again.....

Morning Side of the Mountain

Several plein air painters were fortunate enough to be invited to paint at Cloudland Station, just south of Flintstone, GA. The morning was perfect - clear blue sky, gorgeous blazing Fall foliage, and the wonder that is Cloudland Station. This small green building is the school house, which is also the office/information center. Be sure to visit their website at
