I’ve recently become inspired by a visit to Hoopers’ Island which is near the  Blackwater Wildlife Refuge on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The island is sinking into the Chesapeake and consists of beautiful marshland and a few abandoned houses. I usually sketch the scene on location, take a photo, and proceed to do a value study in pencil.  I actually paint the scene in my studio using watercolor or pastel, sometimes combining the two. The rural countryside in Rappahannock County is a continuing inspiration to me.
