After the Rain

This tree is at the ice pond on the trail to Roostercomb Mt. After a rain storm the sun came out and illuminated this pinetree from behind and just lit it up like a green spear 8x10in pastel

Vapor Trail

I've painted these white houses many times . I am drawn back to them because the morning light ccasts such cool shadows. The houses are like monopoly pieces set down on a gameboard. It was a hot  clear morning in Keene Valley,NY. these houses are next to the school and behind the firehouse. I left the vapor trail in the sky because I thought it leads the eye down into the pines. It also suggests this 21st cen presence of life in a limeless landscape. 12x16in

Two More for Keene Valley

Cold Frosty Morning - Marcy field 
We usually see Marcy field green with grass but This morning there was a silver frost on the grass that disappeared as soon as the sun came up. The footprints were mine. 10x10in oil 

Noonmark Mt 
I tried to be a little flatter with my paints. Painting a landscape should be like assembling puzzzle pieces. 10x22in oil
