Great show! And a new watercolor (Shocking sexy chick!)

Un grand “merci” to all art buyers at the benefit show Saturday. I just finished this watercolor of the exotic arctic falcon that was at the Laird house last weekend. No longer a threatened species, according to Wikipedia,  the  Gyrfalcon’s range is mostly Canada and north. You will not likely find him on the Chattahoochee river watershed. Stay tuned for info on two upcoming shows (November 4 in Dahlonega, and the December 5 at Alliance Française.)

To see which paintings sold and which ones are still available, go to waltercumming.com and click on “current exhibit”.




And this pastel of “Edge of the World ” rapids on The Amicalola River is still available.Edge of world 2 copy

Chattahoochee Point 2

Above is a cold, rocky gorge full trout, about 30 miles upriver from Atlanta, called Chattahoochee Point. It’s accessible only by boat (or by waders if you know the trails)

Sharptop autumn dusk2This is a spectacular 16″x 20″ pastel of the southern end of the Appalachian mountains, the Ogelthorpe Massif, on an autumn dusk. The peak on the left, Mount Ogethporpe (3,350 ft), was the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail until 1957 when it was moved to Springer Mountain, about 20 miles north (fact check that date svp)

See something, draw something! (and kill your iPhone)

A few days ago, I accidentally “water boarded ” and killed my iPhone when I swam in the Chattahoochee River near Jones Bridge. I didn’t get any useful information from the technique but I did enjoy 3 days of joy and freedom until my came back to life after drying out in a bag of white rice. Meanwhile, I finished these 2 new pastels for my upcoming exhibits this fall. Stay tuned for details…
