Purples, Greens & Yellows

"Purple Loosestrife Abounds"

22x28", oil on canvas

This is the largest plein air painting I have ever done. Purple loosestrife is a classic fixture along the Susquehanna river. The greens, yellows, and purples make for a wonderful, natural landscape design. Thrilled this piece has found a home in the Susquehanna Valley.

Covered Bridge Classic

"Wading by Red Bridge"
(Yellow Breeches, Messiah College, Grantham, PA)

oil, 9x12"

This proved to be a cool spot on one of the hottest days of summer. While plein air painting, bold brush strokes and bright colors were chosen to reflect the heat of the day juxtaposed with the exuberance of many people dashing in and out of the creek.
