Undaunted Courage

Well, I currently live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Cindy got accepted to the University of Virginia law school, and now I am enjoying the beautiful vistas of the Appalachians. I just finished setting up my new studio, very similar to my old one (in the dining room now as opposed to the living room). This is quite an inspiring place, especially after visiting Jefferson’s Monticello.
This new painting was commissioned just before we left. It is the largest painting I have worked on since college so it was a bit of a challenge following the previous small scale painting. I haven’t worked this fast in a while, but I am pleased with the result. The four figures in the painting are all of my wife, and this is a follow up to my previous Cliffhangers piece.
