Through a whole series of events i Started thinking about the Appalachian Mountains and the women who played music. The background mountains are painted using a gel to give them some substance and then i started thinking about the people i wanted in these paintings and found this wonderful picture who i hope will resemble when the years permit.

Although i have never been to the Appalachian Mountains, my family did live there for generations. I thought it would be fun to add a picture of my ancestors to this cabin and pretend that they created music.

There are fewer and fewer of the old rances in Central Oregon. It seems that to preserve them I must put them on canvas so the next generations can enjoy them.

We have so few chances to just be quiet. Sometimes it would be nice to run away to a little cabin and just listen.

This image came to me in a dream. Since i don't do faces i couldn't imagine finishing this, but again my hands had a mind of their own. and so, my tribute to the Possibilities of Hope.
