The Beautiful James River off The Blue Ridge Parkway and More Blue Ridge Discovery Center News


My Artwork

I have always loved water.  When I was a child I spent as much time as I could playing at a creek near our house.  I loved the sound of the water and walking on the rocks.

Creeks, rivers, and, of course, the ocean are places I would rather be than anywhere else.  Much of my artwork includes water.

I am especially pleased with the peaceful moods I captured from two views of the James River off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  This is another site my husband researches for bird and butterfly species.

I will never forget how beautiful the water looked and how magical the reflections were on this day.  My husband, I, and our son Alan walked all around this location and this painting is the view from the walkway bridge under the Harry Flood Byrd Memorial bridge which was constructed in 1959 . I am especially pleased with the complicated system of greens in this painting and the colors reflected in the perfectly still water.

  2. In “James River Reflections” I really like the tension between the water/tree reflections and what’s going on in the sky – the sky treatment is so abstract – with the more impressionist river scene, it makes the whole painting more interesting, to me.

  3. I suspect I shall never have the discretionary income required to buy a piece like Blue Ridge wildflowers, nonetheless the sight of such work I will always bring a tear to My eye and warmth to my heart.
