North Carolina is a beautiful place with mild weather and four seasons. Because of this, a lot of people choose to move here.

Recently, I was commissioned to do this painting of someone’s house in the beautiful Plott Balsam Range of Jackson County NC. I wanted to capture the feel of the home in the woods.

I love the town of Sylva. It is a charming mountain town about 1 hour west of Asheville. The historic red brick business district is beautiful, and the old courthouse, now the Library, above town is distinctive.

This is a view of the town from the old courthouse.

Asheboro’s historic downtown is mainly along Sunset Avenue. It is bisected by a railroad crossing. When Asheboro was beginning to revitalize the downtown, they hired Susan Harrell to do a train mural on the side of the building.

I enjoyed doing this painting. I love the warm highlights and the cool shadows. The Orange of the building complements the blue of the shadows and the sky. It is one of my favorite paintings I have done of my town.

I love the warm light of late afternoon. It makes everything glow. This is our historic courthouse, here in Asheboro, NC. I enjoyed looking for the subtle color variations, and the warm cool contrast of the light and shadow.

I enjoy living in the country. I like the laid back lifestyle, the quiet, the beauty of growing things, and the lack of traffic, unless you get stuck behind a tractor.

This was a fun scene of two tractors parked in a farmyard in front of a barn.
