Another beautiful section of The Blue Ridge Parkway is Tuggles Gap. I especially like excursions there for the gorgeous scenery and for the Tuggles Gap restuarant!
I have done a number of paintings around the Tuggles Gap area and and especially pleased with Blue Ridge Magic. This painting certainly shows the viewer how the Blue Ridge Mountains got its name!
Tuggles Gap is sparsely populated with only 39 people per square mile. The nearest town larger than 50,000 inhabitants takes a little over a mile by local transportation.

Yesterday I was so pleased to sell one of my popular beach paintings, "Beach Houses at Pawleys Island, to a great Maryland patron! This is one of my favorite paintings and one of my favorite places to visit.
We have been going to Isle of Palms the last few years but this year we are going to Pawleys which is the setting for a number of my beach paintings.
