Artist Statement: "Grovers Mill" attracted me for its mixture of natural features with vintage architecture. A spot across the creek from the mill house allowed me to include elements of vegetation and water. I sketched the scene on canvas with charcoal. I returned many consecutive days to gradually bring all of the details to focus in oil. I finished the detailing by painting the water coming under the bridge.Bio: My art training included time at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and studies with James Hanes and Paul Gorka.
