Morning light lll

This color sketch is the last in a tryptych of two buildings in Keene Valley that capture the light at both dawn and dusk in extrordinary ways. I usually walk out from the inn just past the school around 6 am with my thermos of coffee and the dog. I wait for the sun to come up over the mountain and when it strikes the town I am rewarded with long dramatic shadows and patterns of warm light. 9x9in. oil SOLD


This was just a quick sketch. As I was walking down Market street I spotted this remnant of the old Mobile station (now a health club) that someone hung over their garage.
I wasout of panels but I did have a cigar box I kept my oil pastels in. So I used that. I may frame it with the left over pieces. I just thought it was fun and unexpected. 9x9 3/4 oil
