Such a beautiful day!  I hope to get my work done and get outside.  I am indoors so much of the time. 

I am preparing for another painting and it will be a small one so I won’t be so intimidated by the cost of the paint.  Sometimes I practically use a whole tube of $22 white oil paint on one large painting.  That is just one of the tubes.  I use a lot of cadmium red light, too.  It costs $60 a tube. 

Of course, all this is taken into account when a price is established. The main cost of one of my paintings is determined by my time and expertise after working and developing my art since I was twelve. Decades of practice and still learning all the time.  Any artists that are reading this know exactly what I am talking about. 

Anyway, I am pleased to sell another print of my best selling lake painting to a great Maryland patron!  Be sure to click on the link under the painting to see all the print possibilities listed on the right.  Time to get some sunshine!

Biltmore Ghosts


A while back I wrote about some ghostly activity at the Biltmore Estate.  Yesterday I found out that there was a lot more to the story!

Back in 1914, George W. Vanderbilt died from complications from a surgery he had for appendicitis. His wife was extremely upset. So late at night, in the Library, she would sit in front of the large marble fireplace, and talk with George though he was never really there.

Her servants started to think she was losing her mind. To this day, late at night you can still hear her voice talking with George very softly. Also, you can feel George’s presence in the Billiard Room, and the 2nd floor Oak Sitting room, one of his favorite rooms in the mansion.

During rainy late nights, George would sit and read. Workers report feelings of being watched, apparitions, voices, laughing, & screams. A headless orange cat has been seen by numerous visitors roaming the area between the Gardens and the Bass pond. The Pool Room is also a focal point of unexplainable events. The sound of people swimming echoes throughout the entire lower floor in the dead of night.

Insane laughter can be heard coming from the drain at the bottom of the pool. It is said to be haunted by a lady in black. Employees report hearing footsteps on the second floor. It’s $10 for the small tour and $50 for the full tour of the house. But be sure you stay CLOSE to the guide. Odds are, there will only be 3 or 4 people touring with you.

I got this story from The Blue Ridge Parkway Guide online publication
