Birch Trees After a Rain.

A summer thunderstorm came through Keene Valley and wonderful mists arose out of the woods. 9x9in pastel

Lake Cascade

 A small pastel of view down the length of Cascade Lake at the foot of Mt. Cascade. Pitchoff is on the left. It was cool day and the birch trees were just beginning to leaf and were almost purple in color. I'm told the birches are slowly dying out  here because of  the salting of the winter road. 9x9 pastel on sanded paper
