Baxter Mt. from Keene Valley. oil 10x 10in.
iIwas painting plein-air along the trail leading to Rooster Comb mt. There is a small beaver pond near the school. The two little white houses in the painting are the ones I have painted under sunset light furthur down the page. Anyway, a woman hikes by and stops to look. She bought the painting wet, right off the easel! I boxed it up for her in a Noonmark Diner pie box (perfect fit). My first Keene Valley sale.

There is a lovely hemlock forest on the way into Keene Valley that I visit often. I painted this in about an hour(10x10in). I had to work very fast to capture the light changes.It was a breakthrough painting in that I couldn't detail it and I used a heavy impasto style. sold
