He also had one of his Statesville NC watercolors to appear on the cover of Sandra Douglas Campbell's book "Iredell County A Brief History".

Recently he has focused on local history and landmarks of Statesville NC and other small towns in North Carolina. He also enjoys doing what he calls "house portraits" of various homes in the historical districts of these towns.

Moore is almost completly self taught and only started doing watercolors five years ago. He worked in oils for years but now prefers watercolors and says that the paintings he does with them come more freely than they ever did in oils. He prefers to take his own photos and work from them in his studio.

Moore has now shifted some of his attention to historic Charleston. He loves the history and feel of this town. He is painting a series of historic homes and their gates. He also enjoys doing some of the college landmarks and has done a series of Alabama and Auburn along with Davidson College.
