Nova Scotia Series

RV Nova Scotia

This series began while living in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia during the summer of 1984. A number of drawings and all but two of the paintings below were completed there. Later, the last two of the Nova Scotian work were begun in Virginia and in Memphis, Tennessee in 1985. Usually windy up on the hill, most of the paintings were completed inside the trailer. A screen-room off the trailer where I intended to work was blown out in a gale one night.
