Still Waters, oil on canvas 16 x 20
This painting completed entirely on location earlier this fall was a true joy to paint. This is an area swimming hole on the Poultney River and the rock formations are truly amazing. I loved the early afternoon light in this area and hope sometime next year to paint in the same area only in a different season. I should think a fall setting of this same scene would be beautiful. I was pleased to find out that my painting, "Peonies and Hydrangeas" has won the Helen DeCozen Memorial Award for a Floral from the 81st Grand National Exhibition of the American Artists Professional League. The show will be at the Salmagundi Club, in New York until November 13th.
