ve always enjoyed drawing and painting. But I wasn't able to
really concentrate on art until
I retired. For the past few years my focus has has been on the beautiful landscapes in the Shenandoah Valley. I feel fortunate to live where there are so many beautiful farms, pastures and mountains, challenging me to paint. Recently, I have been working on a series from North Mountain. We have a log cabin in the woods on Rt. 42. The woods have inspired me to capture not only what I see, but more important to me, what I feel. Sometimes it is the warmth of the light as it flicks through the trees, other times it is the dark shapes against a clear blue sky.
