A View North, Middletown Springs, VT oil on canvas 16 x 20

Summer is truly upon us here in VT. With this painting I wanted to focus on the beauty of the distant hillside. I wanted to convey a feeling of a warm, New England summer day. With many more days such as these, I'll be ready for winter!

A Summer Stroll in Orwell, Vermont

We are upon the beautiful days of summer in Vermont, the days that seem to make the cold and bleakness of winter all worthwhile! I was out a few weeks ago exploring some areas around Orwell, Vermont and came upon this lovely scene. The light was coming through the heavy clouds in wonderful patterns just hitting the tops and edges of the trees. In the painting, I hoped to create a sense of mystery in the painting a sort of, "I wonder what is beyond the bend in the road" type mystery. The answer will have to come in another painting; there were a few jewels to be found indeed! Back to painting....and picking raspberries!
