Northern virginia collection

paintings following my artist-in-residence program.

In April of 2017, I completed a two week artist-in-residence program with the National Park Service, Department of the Interior at Manassas Battlefield National Park in northern Virginia.  I had lived in that area twenty years ago and had always wanted to return during the Spring "blue-bell" season along Bull Run. I felt truly honored to be selected their first one to start their new program.  There were so many acres to cover, the two weeks went by quickly.  I made good use of my time by using my watercolor sketchbook as part of my process. Hiking out on foot to some of my favorite views, I was able to bring home 16 watercolor sketches to work from to base new oil paintings on in the comfort of my studio.
