The Locusts Along My Road

Acrylic on Paper
20" x 7.5"

I love that, years ago, the dairy farmer across the road, (now a horse farm) thought it was a good idea to plant these Locust trees along the road, and to space them out so evenly.
I paint them looking east and sometimes from the other side looking west. It always interests me.  I am looking forward to finishing the next one

"Creavtive Crossings" Exhibition

I was invited to exhibit my small, long format landscapes together with Ann Wilkerson's photography.
This exhibit has been curated by Martine Vermeulen. I was very pleased that Martine was able to see the similarities between Ann and myself and the way we see landscape.
If you are in the area, please stop by. I will be at the show the entire time, both weekends

Small, but Important Study

Oil on Canvas, mounted on Board
12" x 12"

I really needed to feel the light across the valley. I also realized I wanted this tree to be smaller on this large canvas to help move the eye back into the entire picture plane

New Home for a Couple of Landscapes

Winter Treeline
20" x 7.5" Acrylic on Paper

Summer Treeline
20" x 7.5 Acrylic on Paper

Today it is snowy and cold in Millbrook. In about hour, the lower yard will look exactly like the top painting. Both paintings are traveling to Ireland to live there, selected by my holidays guests. I will particularly miss the "Summer Treeline", as I liked to look at it on fridged days like today.

Subtle Changes

A little bit of, "two steps forward and one step back", but I am please with the development. The holidays always make it hard to focus on a larger block of time.
Right now I am enjoying being snowed in! The plow just came by and did the driveway
