Keene Valley Days

 Outside its snowing and cold. It's a snow day and it's time for my annual Keene Valley fire truck painting. I love the bright cadmium red truck that's parked all over town during August celebrations. Every winter I do a little painting  to remind me of those warm summer days. I donate the painting to the firehouse auction when we visit. I think this is the 4th . 10x10in oil on birch panel

Snow Day

 I completed this pastel during a snow day holiday from school last week. It was a clear, crisp and very cold morning walking Maggie through the woods behind school that I stopped to marvel at the  blue shadows cast by the sun. 16x20in pastel
