In memory of Doc Watson...

North Carolina lost an icon of integrity and talent yesterday... Doc Watson passed away at the age of 89. His home in Deep Gap is a 15 minute drive from our mountain lodge in Fleetwood. I have been a Doc fan for many years... here I am at his statue in Boone, NC.

I never tire painting the North Carolina landscape... I live on the Carolina Coast but spend as much time in the Blue Ridge mountains as possible, all the while, painting as I journey through life.
