Radford Virginia

Bio: I am an award-winning professional artist and former Asst. Prof. of Art at Radford University with artwork in 32 states, six countries, and the art collection of actress, Morgan Fairchild. My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene. 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-two states, Canada, Germany, Russia, England, Switzerland and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art! http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-site-verification-using-meta-tag/ .

  3. Kendall your work is so beautiful! I love the color….and the movement and textures. It’s as if we see through the same eyes in terms of the saturation and combination of color in this world. I haven’t looked at it all, but so far especially love your sister with Beau, the lion, horse and several of your landscapes. Thank you for following my blog so I learned about yours, which has filled with joy…that’s how your work effects me.

  6. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
