Lives of Birds

Nancy's painting "Lives of Birds" will be displayed in the 2021 Virginia Watercolor Exhibit being held at the Portsmouth Art and Cultural Center from August 6, 2021 until September 12, 2021. Internationally-known artist Linda Baker was the juror for the show. This annual exhibit is in a different area of Virginia each year. The Center at 400-420 High Street in Portsmouth is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00-5:00 and Sunday 1:00-5:00. It is closed on Mondays (except for holidays). This is a rare opportunity to see the work of many of the best artists in Virginia.


  • The Artists Gallery (in the Virginia Beach Art Center, located at 532 Virginia Beach Blvd.) My wall here changes frequently as paintings are sold.
  • D’Art Center (740 Boush St. in Norfolk). I have a wall display here as well as paintings for sale in their Online Gallery Shop. To get to the Online Gallery Shop, go to the D’Art Center website.
  • The Gallery Shop (420 High St. in Portsmouth). My display here changes about every 5 months. (Temporarily closed)
  • Three of my paintings are regularly on display and for sale at The Main (Norfolk’s 4-star Hilton Hotel at 100 E. Main St.). This exhibit by D’Art artists is best seen in the daytime in the corridor to Selden Arcade and in an adjacent space in the hotel. Both are to the right of the front door and near the door to the garage.


Because I have moved from a house to an apartment and cannot take most of my paintings with me, I have SLASHED PRICES on150 works. Please choose which paintings you would like to buy by clicking on ORIGINAL COMPLETE LIST OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS or the SALE: AVAILABLE WORKS LIST under the rotating works on the first page of the Art Gallery. Use whichever list seems most helpful to you. You can see photographs of all the paintings in my website Art Gallery. They are organized under the same headings. You do not have to commit to buying until you have seen and approved of the actual work. You can buy on layaway the few more expensive ones. Paintings can be delivered anywhere in Hampton Roads.
