Mossy Creek Folk Art Painting

As I sit here sipping my coffee and clearing the fog from my mind, I can hear the gentle rain outside my window. Spring has definitely arrived and I couldn't be more ready. Soon I'll be able to take my coffee outside and sit on the deck before starting to paint each morning. Just sitting and watching the birds while taking in the nature that surrounds us really inspires me with new ideas.
This new painting, "Mossy Creek", was inspired by Penny from Lavender Hill . I will be sending Penny a card with a digital image of this painting on it as a "thank you" for her title. This painting is now listed on eBay .

In the village of Mossy Creek families attend the local country church and they all know each other. They never pass a stranger on the street and children ride bikes or walk to school and their friend's homes. Boys and girls play baseball, jacks, jump rope, and in general, run and play outside. Miss Carolina who lives in the rose covered, victorian cottage, opens her windows to let in the gentle breeze and the gleeful laughter of children.

Our son, Eric, returned home a couple of weeks ago from a trip to Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, and Hungary. Below is a photo from his trip (he's in the middle). He had a wonderful time and I'll try to share a few of his photos once I get a little more information from him.


  1. Such a great photo! It reminds me of my almost 21 year old who has had the most amazing travel opportunities throughout college. Thanks for sharing.
