An evocative still life with nods to the past and present. As the EPA is dismantled by an illegitimate president, many want to know the secret.

East Coast Vineyards I & II Found New Home!

Many thanks to the collector in New Hampshire!

"East Coast Vineyards I & II" by C. Twomey

These two oil paintings are of a gorgeous vineyard on the east coast, in Virginia. They are nuanced and detailed, with undulating rows of the grape vines in their full glory. The painting glows with it's exquisite attention to detail and color variations. It captures a stunning sunny day and distant mountains, bringing a sense of peace and calm. The paintings are framed in handmade, hand rubbed frames in a lovely grey-green shade and antique gold inset.

Plein Air Oil Painting, The Biltmore Estate

Oil painting by C. Twomey
Bass Pond (L) and the Biltmore Bridge by C. Twomey, ©2017

Had a fantastic time painting at the gorgeous Biltmore Estate in Asheville on Friday. Oh what a day! The wind was way up for the first painting of the bridge (on the right). I had to hang on to everything just to operate at all!

For the second painting, left, I hiked to the Boat House on Bass Pond. Here, I was sheltered from the wind and spent a good couple of hours quietly drawing, painting and talking to some lovely people who happened by.

Going to do a lot more of this! A peaceful, productive meditation in doing what makes one happy.

Thank you so much to the collector of "Buck Mountain Vineyards." For additional information and prints, please click:


Driving along Buck Mountain road as the sun was starting to head down, I pulled off the road as I had to get this sight down. The most stunning view of the day - the vines, the mist in the Blue Ridge mountain valley's, the way the sun blasted the foliage. No wonder I love this place - has brought great peace and happiness.

Sold! "Advance Mills Hay Bales" by C. Twomey

"Advance Mills Hay Bales" C. Twomey

Thank you to the collector of this painting, your interest is greatly appreciated! For additional information, please click HERE.

Along Advance Mills Road is an area of large hayfields, usually right next to the cattle the hay will feed. These fields look out onto the Blue Ridge Mountains, but this time what caught my eye were the bales themselves. The patterns of bright sun with contrasting shadows as the sun fell were stunning.
