Artist Comments

My husband and I visited Devils Tower National Monument in the summer of 2016. This place is a unique geological rock tower which rises above the grassy plains of northeast Wyoming. At the time we were vacationing in Rapid City, South Dakota and since the tower was within driving distance of our hotel, we simply could not pass up the opportunity to visit this “one-of-a-kind natural wonder.”

Devils Tower could be seen from miles away as we made our approach to the national park. Upon arriving at our destination we drove through the 2.1 square mile park which surrounded the monument. We couldn’t help but notice the tower as it was the centerpiece of the park. It looked like a giant granite tree stump with a flat summit and fluted sides.

Devils Tower stands more than 867 feet from its base to the summit and measures approximately 180 feet by 300 feet at the top and is about a mile in circumference at the base. Around the base of the tower is a 1.25-mile self-guided hiking trail that provided us with spectacular close-up views of the tower. There was another much wider 3-mile trail that also loops around the tower, but we didn’t take that one. We spent a better part of the day there exploring and learning all we could about the tower before heading back to the hotel. All-in-all it was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Why “Devils Tower” and Not “Devil’s Tower”?

Devils Tower was declared America’s first official national monument by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1906. Originally it was called “Devil’s Tower” with an apostrophe, however, somewhere along the way the apostrophe was dropped due to clerical error and was never corrected. To this day it is still called Devils Tower with no apostrophe.

Peggy’s Cove Collection

Enjoy this page? Please share it. Thanks!

Peggy’s Cove is one of the numerous small fishing communities located on the eastern shores of St. Margarets Bay in Nova Scotia. This location is also famous for the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse (established 1868). Each year many artists and photographers flock to this location to capture its beauty in their creative works. It is also a favorite tourist destination for many vacationers.

The Peggy’s Cove Series didn’t start out to be a series. I did my first painting of this series in 2005 while living on the east coast in the Norfolk VA area. I loved the way the bright red house stood out in contrast to the water and landscape around it, so I decided to do a painting of this famous Nova Scotia cove.  Two years later the painting sold to a doctor living in Maine. Shortly after the sale a collector from Louisiana commissioned me to do two more paintings of the cove for her. I love this location in Canada and plan on more paintings to add to this series in the near future.

A lot of artists have painted this famous cove and it’s easy to see why. You may have noticed that two of the painting are very similar. They are of the same viewpoint, however, since I strive to not create two identical paintings I did paint some differences between the two.

Description: A snow painting of a hiker scaling up Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa.

Customer Feedback

I wanted you to know that I received the painting and presented it to Jim and he loved it! Thank you so much for all of your time and effort. It was well worth the wait! — A. Boutillier, Morristown NJ

Artist Comments

This was a commission painting done for a client who had hiked up Mt. Kilimanjaro one year. The client supplied the photo from her trip for this painting. Since this was a memorable trip for my client, I kept the painting as close to the photograph as possible. My client loved the finished painting and proudly displays it in her living room where it receives many favorable comments from her guests.

About Mt. Kilimanjaro

Located in Tanzania Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro is actually a dormant volcano and also happens to be the highest mountain in Africa at 19,340 feet above sea level. Its three volcanic cones are named Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It isn’t certain where the name Kilimanjaro originates from, but there are several theories about that. A few possible meanings could be Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness, or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not be any of these.

This mountain is a popular attraction for hikers and mountain climbers from all over the globe. Some estimate that more people have died trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro than Mount Everest. However, it needs to be pointed out that Everest is attempted by significantly fewer climbers than Kilimanjaro.

Artist Comments

This Gothic church was originally painted and made famous by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh in June 1890. Van Gogh’s church is located in Auvers, France. I wanted to do my own rendition of this lovely church building and the results of that desire are what you see here. You can find out more about Van Gogh’s rendition of this church on Wikipedia: The Church at Auvers.

Although our styles are vastly different, Van Gogh is a favorite painter of mine. I love much of his work, from that vase of sunflowers to this old church in the village where he lived before his death. Many of his oil paintings were characterized by bold, dramatic colors emphasized by impulsive and expressive brushwork. He painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits.

According to Wikipedia, Van Gogh is considered among the “most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.”  He painted around 860 oil paintings and many of these were painted during the last two years of his life. He died at age 37 by a self inflicted wound. You can read more about Van Gogh here.

This canvas art is part of a series of paintings called the Christian Art Series.

Artist Comments

This painting is second in a series of Holy Land paintings featuring the Garden Tomb. The famous tomb is located in the Garden of Gethsemane near Jerusalem and is considered by many Christians to be the actual burial and resurrection place of Jesus the Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull, rather than the famous Church of The Holy Sepulcher.

Many believe this to be the site of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus because it so clearly fits the description described in each of the Gospel accounts.

Site of the Crucifixion

    • Skull Rock outside the city walls of Jerusalem
    • Near a gate of the city
    • Along a busy thoroughfare
    • At a place of public execution
    • At the place of the skull – Golgotha
    • A garden nearby

Evidence regarding the site of the tomb can be found in Matthew 27:57-60.

    • Skull Rock located in a garden
    • Belonged to a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea
    • Cut out of the rock
    • Sealed with a rolling stone
    • Entered through a low doorway
    • Burial chamber situated to the right of the entrance

For more information about this popular tourist place, check out this website.

This painting is part of the Bible Lands Series.

The Sea of Galilee is a large freshwater lake located in northeast Israel, between the Golan Heights and the Galilee region. The Jordan River is its main source of water. The lake is approximately 13 miles long and 8 miles wide.

This painting of a famous Bible place was inspired by my love of God’s word and readings about Jesus in the Bible. I love Israel because God’s chosen people live there. I have never visited Israel, however, I would love to go there someday. This painting was composed using a reference photo from the “Pictorial Library of Bible Lands”. The photographer, Todd Bolen, graciously gave me permission to use his photos for any of my Bible land paintings.

According to Matthew 4:13-22, this historic biblical location is where Jesus began His ministry and called His first disciples. This passage tells us Jesus left Nazareth and went to Capernaum. While walking along the banks of the Sea of Galilee Jesus called the first four of His disciples Simon called Peter, Andrew, James and John.

Other scripture references about Capernaum: Matthew 8:5, 11:23, 17:24; Mark 1:21, 2:1, 9:33; Luke 4:23, 4:31, 7:1, 10:15; John 2:12, 4:46, 6:17, 6:24, 6:59. You can easily look up these scriptures here.

Artist Comments

Monument Valley, Utah is considered one of the natural wonders of the world and is perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the iconic American Old West. This valley has long been a favorite location for filming Western movies. The isolated red mesas, striking spires and sandstone buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years.

Called Tsé Bii’ Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks) by the Navajo, this famous valley lies in the southern part of the state of Utah near the Arizona border within the Navajo Nation Reservation. When you first approach the area, these rock “monuments” will take your breath away. The eerie rock formations make you feel as if you’ve been transported to another planet. It is truly one of the most majestic places on earth.

The first time I visited this national park I knew right away I’d love painting this beautiful valley. I’ve actually painted Monument Valley several times and this is one of those. I also have memories of several paintings I did of this place when I was a youngster studying under my dad who was also a professional oil painting artist. My dad loved painting this location too and painted several oil paintings of it himself. None of those early paintings are around anymore. I’m not sure what became of them. My dads paintings sold to art collectors and local businesses in the small community where we lived.
