Looking at this painting now, I can hardly imagine it was not that long ago. I did this one hot June day at Harkness State park in Niantic, CT where I did a whole series this summer. Since this shot I have touched it up a bit adding some more highlights, etc. Settling into fall now and doing some major surgery on the last oil series I posted. Will show you soon.

Is it Really Fall?

"Wind in the Willows"

I can't believe how much has transpired in my life since I did this watercolor around this time last year. This past weekend I was driving around up in the mountains with sweetie and rode past this spot. It seems like lifetimes ago. When I did this watercolor I remember sitting on the hard ground in the mists (it was sorta rainy) and feeling a bit melancholy. (Well, how could ya not?). I felt good about the piece and came home and tweaked it a wee bit in the details. Not my best piece but I like it in some respects.
