Here is one more of my paintings of beautiful Roanoke, VA before I move on to other great places in Southwest Virginia.  This one is a great celebration of the beautiful pear trees that adorn Campbell Avenue.

I always include my phone number on the back of my paintings and was very pleased when the buyer called me to tell me how thrilled she was with the painting.  She hung it in her office.  I have seen her a number of times since then and she always tells me how much she loves it!

Computer Challenged

I am getting a lot of likes on my About page which is much appreciated but when I go to look at the people I follow I have a hard time finding the About page.   So, please be patient with me.  I didn’t grow up with computers and they baffle me at times.

Life with the Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband and I are noticing signs of aging that we don’t like.  I’m sure no one likes the memory problems and general ditziness that we all get if we don’t die young.

The other day I looked up Alzheimer’s symptoms to make sure I am not developing that disease.  I found a list of symptoms of aging with two rows.  The first one was Alzheimer’s and the second row was age.  All of my symptoms are found in the second list.  Yea!!!

Yesterday I said to my husband I just can’t cut the mustard anymore.  He said he couldn’t even find the mustard!

Here is another Roanoke painting that looks at the Blue Ridge Mountains from the inside.  In “Leaving Roanoke” I have captured a special moment when the car lights and street light have just come on but it isn’t dark yet.  The colors of light and shade are still prominent and the mood is serene even though the traffic is heavy.

The view of the mountain ridge reminds us of  a great city that is nestled in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains!

I also have some of my work on Youtube!  Please check out my paintings there as well as my website.  I am an amateur pianist so I included a number of piano pieces I like as background music.

I have one about my Beautiful Nude series which includes my drawing, “Reaching Out”, which was chosen out of over 3 million works of art on Fine Art America to be on The Mindy Project.  It is in the main character’s office and there have been many shots of it in various episodes.  The show took a break but will be back in April.
