I prefer to live in Rural America.  As a kid i lived for a while in a smallish town with orchards and farms, surrounded by mountains.  When I went off to college, I chose a tiny community, and loved the farms and turkey ranches, as well as the beauty of nature.  When I was an […]

On a late afternoon, after a hard day of work, it is always nice to come home!  Home is where we can be ourselves, Home is where the people that love us most live.  Home is where most of our happiest memories are made. I was approached to do this painting by a family who […]

I hated winter growing up. I remember shoveling snow many days in a row, morning and afternoon, and having snow dump down my neck when shoveling under a tree. Everything was cold, all the lakes were frozen, and the air was very polluted. Now I dont mind winter.  The days are generally in the 40s […]

At the junction of Trents Ferry Road and Boonsboro Road in Lynchburg, Virginia, is a really cute little farm.  Judith Creek flows through it on the way to the James River.  I always thought it would be a great place to live, and it is very beautiful. I love the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia […]

June is a beautiful month around my house.  Plants have been growing long enough to be luxurious.  Blossoms are out all over.  The cone flowers and gay feathers are in full bloom, and the gladiolas are starting.  Cannas are starting to be bright as well. Here is my homage to my blooms.

My nephew said it all when he was quoted for a newspaper article.  He said “It is our temple!”  Our church builds beautiful temples to worship God in, and to do ordinances that link families together eternally.  They are very sacred, and are  only open to the public before they are dedicated.  This is the […]

I love old homes.  I like to look at the architecture of the place.  If it is an old farmhouse, I wonder what life was like on that farm many years ago. We all have homes that bring back memories for us, like our grandparent’s homes. My grandparents lived in homes built in the 60’s, […]

On old NC 49, just southwest of Asheboro, there is a barbecue restaurant. It is called Silo’s.  I wonder if they named it after this picturesque farm located right behind it.  Asheboro is located in the Uwharrie Mountains, a small, eroded, ancient chain.  Our home is located in the hills you can see in the […]

Asheboro is like the proverbial city on a hill. It sits on a ridge, and within a few blocks of each other creeks begin, which later flow into the Yadkin River, or on the other side, the Cape Fear River.  This is a small quick painting of Cedar Fork Creek, on the west side of […]

Small, rural towns are some of my favorite places.  They all have their own character.  They have neat churches, and old houses. If they are the county seat, they usually have a great courthouse.  I am always a little sad when I go to a town where the old courthouse has been torn down, and […]
