Sometimes you just need to get through the night to see the beauty waiting to be tasted and savored. Sometimes it is the night itself that helps heal.

In the mountains of North Carolina fall is not just gold, red or brown, but green, plum red, with a sky of deep blue with puffs of pure white silk.

24" x 6" x 6" x 6" x 6", three-dimensional, four sided mixed media painting with collage, charcoal pencil, and balsam on wood

Fall comes slowly in the Carolinas but leaves quickly with first frost. The colors, shapes, and textures either tumble to the ground or go from golds, reds, and green to brown almost overnight. In almost every light the sky remains its pure sweet blue.

Water Timpani

48" x 6" x 6" x 6" x 6" with 3.5" base, continuous mixed media painting on wood

Like a drummer varying where he strikes the membrane, water as it makes it way down a mountainside can trickle, bubble, pound or roar, depending on its speed, volume, and what it strikes along the way. This 4-sided continuous painting was inspired by the waterfalls of Transylvania County in North Carolina.
