After the Storm -3

Oil on canvas - 14" x 18"  This was actually a cloud formation that I observed one evening in late June while returning home from exploring back roads in northeastern Kent County.  The atmosphere was almost dreamy, the lack of noise was exhilerating to my soul bombarded daily with the congestion of the city. I was enraptured with the silence and awed by the beauty of God's creation stretching out before me.

Oil on canvas - 24" x 48"   This  85 year old + vineyard and orchard, originally located near the corner of Knapp and the East Beltline was torn out and replaced with a large commercial developement-Celebration Cinemas.  All that you see now is a parking lot and buildings. Knowing that it was soon to be gone forever I walked the property and completed several oils from different vantage points this being one of my favorites.  Giclee prints of this painting will soon be available. Please contact my studio to purchase a print.
