Washington and Lee's beautiful Lee Chapel in Lexington, Virginia
Evening In Lexington
oil on canvas
48 x 48 inches

Washington and Lee... my favorite place. Last December I traveled to Lexington to deliver some artwork. It turned cold and snowy late one evening and Dave and I took some fun night shots on campus. Based on those images, I worked on this painting from February until September of 2010. The piece changed from a winter scene into a rich warm evening. The painting reminds me of the summers I spent in Lexington on a quiet campus with beautiful southern charm. I can almost hear the crickets and see the lightning bugs again.
