NEW IMPASTO PAINTING

Running Rapids Near Natural Bridge
An original 26 x 34 acrylic painting on stretched canvas 
Actual surface textures created with modeling paste reflect soft pastels generated by brilliant sunlight. Numerous glazes were used for its completion.

Exhibition in March at the Art Upstairs Gallery at 112 W.Main Street in Charlottesville, Virginia throughout the month of March. The gallery will host an Art reception  on Friday, March 5th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

Reflections from youth:
..slippery rocks as I strolled across the Rapidan River while fishing
...flowing rapids would drag the fishing line down stream
...high banks that I slid down to reach the river
dark shadows in the under brush where day became night
Such fun!!!
