VIRGINIA WARD MILLS, RESUME

VIRGINIA WARD MILLS (American, 1930-2010)

Most of my oil paintings have been inspired by the Cape. I often express a particular mood or kind of day: sunny but cold; cloudy but warm; the always changing salt marsh; the harsh beauty of raw winter; or, a pot of geraniums on a hot, sunny patio.
