Carter House Gable completed 4/28/11

Built in 1830 ... the Carter House was caught in the middle of the bloody Civil War Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864. It was painted as a plein-air piece ... but the perspective was fine tuned considerable back in the studio. This one will be for sale in July of this year at a Chestnut Group show. 10"x8" Oil on linen

Campbell Spring completed 4/13/11

This spring begins at the base of this tree ... makes me wonder which came first. Also, it reminds me of a well-known Bible verse ... "And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season ... " Psalm 1:3a 14"x11" Oil on linen
