Adirondack Paintings

Cairn on Mt. Jay 12x12in oil 
an oil study where I wanted to play with thick paint, complementary colors, and quick brushstrokes to remind myself of a terrific hike along the Jay mountain ridge trail. . 
 Dawn in the Valley - work in progress  My favorite subject on a dawn walk in Keene Valley. They didn't cut the grass this year and it grew in high and turned the color of straw. 12x24in oil on birch.

color study - Radishes

A little oil painting from the farmers market. Just wanted to play with some bright colors I don't normally use . I really responded to these radishes when they were placed on a cerulean blue tablecloth. 8x12in on birch panel
repainted the tablecloth to be a darker blue for more contrast.
