Brushstrokes: River City Blues

Brushstrokes: River City Blues24"H x 24"W  

In the heat of a summer night, I am feeling those cool Memphis river city blues.

Brushstrokes: Appalachian Bluegrass

Brushstrokes: Appalachian Bluegrass38"H x 29"W  

The Bluegrass mountain music that echos along the "Crooked Road" music trail of southwestern Virginia comes from small enclaves of musicians that play for the love of the sound.

Brushstrokes: Jasper

Brushstrokes: Jasper24"H x 24"W  

Jasper is an aggregate of microgranular quartz.  It is a crystal of exuberance, vitality and vibrancy.  While it presents as rather earthy and opaque on the surface, Jasper has a special glimmer when it is split open.  Within the fissures are hints of light and sparkle to delight.
