Climb up the hill and turn around! Looking beyond the apple tree, you will see the house that Pop Briggs bought years ago. Now in the final phase of restoration by Buddy Briggs and his son, this “cabin” stands proudly on a crest overlooking the west fork of the Little River.
"Dreamcatcher Lane" - SOLD - Prints available
Special to the artist are the apple trees that mark the turn-off to Dreamcatcher Meadows Farm. The view from this spot provides the inspiration for this artwork, reflecting the rolling hay fields surrounding the farm. The original “Dreamcatcher Lane” was purchased at auction by a Richmond, VA resident who, as a young child, was sent to live with relatives in Floyd, VA after the death of her parents.

"Meadow Walk" - SOLD - Prints available
"Meadow Walk" is an original oil painting of a scene I was privileged to have access to, just south of the town of Floyd, Virginia. A walk through the meadows of this small valley brings you to a cleverly constructed suspension bridge. The bridge hovers over the fast moving waters of a stream filled with some of the cleanest water you will ever see. Inspiration here knows no bounds. As you listen to the water rushing beneath you, the suspended bridge gently lifts you up and down until the energy in the cables dissapates. A special place indeed!

"Early Spring Again"
This is an original pen and ink drawing with watercolor accents of an old log barn found in Floyd County, VA. The small images on the mat surrounding the framed work are actual pictures of the Conner Road Barn taken as the barn was being dismantled. The frame was handmade by the artist from the 100-year old wormy American Chestnut wood recovered from the barn. This drawing was sold at the Floyd Artists Association in Floyd, Virginia.
