Oh!Shenandoah, 6×8-inch ceramic tile, $30
There are many ways to acquire beautiful, affordable works of art.
I have created a series of ceramic fine art tiles depicting the landscape of the Shenandoah. All are made from my original pastel paintings. They come in 6×8 and 8×10-inches, depending on the scene. The tiles are durable and can be framed or hung as is, displayed on a small easel, or used in an installation with other tiles. They make wonderful gifts.
Tiles are currently on view and can be purchased at Cristina’s Cafe and Buggy B’s in Strasburg, VA and 7 East Gallery in Woodstock, VA.

Season after season, year after year, the little cherub trio observes the daily changes. Chins propped in hands, their smiling faces portray acceptance of whatever comes.
During the time of morning before the sun rises above the horizon there is a period of, sometimes breathtaking, nuances of light and color. Each instance usually lasts just seconds before a new spectacle of light begins. This painting shows a pale glow of pink morning light descending the hill into a hollow and quietly illuminating an old barn.
One of my favorite drives is on Long Meadow Road which winds its way through woods and meadows, following first the Shenandoah and then Cedar Creek. Here a brief, pink morning light bathes the road as it curves downhill to Long Meadow Farm.
An evening scene of windswept light.
A quarter mile from the house the road to town begins. It’s a dirt and gravel road that covers about a mile out to Oranda Road. I’ve traveled it hundreds of times, in all seasons of the year and times of the day. There is always something beautiful that catches my eye.
The colors of a Shenandoah autumn glow along gently-flowing Cedar Creek.
A field with trees and an old barn down the road from the studio has given me much inspiration over the years.
Here, the side of the barn is illuminated in the last rays of a setting summer sun. I tried hard to channel Mr. Inness.
The last slanted rays of golden evening light strike the side of a pine tree while a full summer moon rises in the distance.
