I had a wonderful time in the Southwest, but there is so much in the Raleigh landscape that I love as well. The walking path around Shelly Lake is one of them. One day I came around the corner and saw a lovely pattern of shadows on the hill. Of course, I took a picture and it catches my attention every time I'm looking thru my photo library. This 8 x 8 is my rendition of the scene. I tried to keep this lose and it's one of those paintings that reads so well from a distance. I had to force myself not to overwork it, which is very hard.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
