My first memory of creating art was at the age of five. My interest was more in dance and music, but I was encouraged to try something new. My first painting, as I recall, was a watercolor, which was first sketched in pencil. It became my grandmother’s favorite gift! When I found oils, I found my comfort zone.

The paintings seen here are among those done for preliminary purposes, getting a feel for my subject and my direction for that subject. Some paintings are from the many art displays over the years. I hope you will find them interesting. Each has special meaning to me.

Oil, 30” x 22”
Bobby Allison began racing (Grand National) Winston Cup in 1966, and some years, coupled with entries in the late model and modified series, ran as many as 70 races. Known as a fierce and intense competitor, Bobby won the 1983 Winston Cup Championship, was runner up five times, won 57 poles and 84 races. He has been IROC Champion, six times Most Popular Driver, is a member of the NMPA and International Motorsports Halls of Fame, the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame, and was named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers.
Called a natural in a race car, this perfectionist had a career, by his own admission, filled with “peaks and valleys.” Often tested by adversity, Bobby’s career ended with a devastating crash, and in 1990 he became a car owner. Now retired, Bobby is in demand for public appearances, speaking engagements, and autograph sessions. His welcoming smile and easygoing nature continue to make him a favorite with race fans throughout the country.

One can only try to image what is going through this beautiful dancer’s mind, as she pauses to catch her breath. Perfecting her skills, legs tired, feet aching, the moment of reflection before continuing her solitary dance.

It is hard to imagine, but in1950….this was a ‘fast-paced pit stop!” The now-famous and storied 1.25-mile track in Darlington, SC, held its first race, The Southern 500, on September 4, 1950.

On March 28, 1993, Dale Earnhardt set a record speed for a 500-mile race at Darlington: 139.958 mph.
