I had some of these sized boards made for me this past spring and I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to work so large. I LOVE to work large. The problem comes in when I try to move them. I literally cannot hold this painting alone because yes, it is heavy, but my arm span is not big enough. . Which can make for a challenging time when I am even painting it much less trying to photograph it. Thankfully I am married to someone a little taller and willing to help, It made me realize how key it is to take photos of the paintings in an actual space because I was convinced it was going to be too big for this space and in fact, is perfect. Painting large is one of my favorite things but there are so many hurdles to doing it that I only really let myself do it about half the amount I would really like to. It is a whole different statement.

My husband flies small planes and now helicopters. I have never been such a fan of flying since I tend to think it might be a little dangerous... but he loves it so I am getting really used to it!  This is one of a series I painted over the summer. We went to see where our daughter was going to go to college, right in the middle of the summer and I was immersed in painting while at Nimrod Hall when you literally start seeing everything as a potential painting. I was enchanted by the patterns and grids that the farmland of Virginia makes from the air and was inspired to paint it immediately when we returned back to Bath County. The paintings are not meant to be exact replica's of any location but an abstract take on what Virginia showed my eyes from the sky. This river is the Cowpasture, but again, I often use my artist's license.
