Marcy Field concert -A" Snow day" painting

Yeah snow days! .Record low temps for Maryland . No school today so I could go through some summer memories and revisit  the warm days  of August. There is a small house on Marcy Field in Keene Valley. It was once the home of Monroe Holt (1845-19210, a  KV guide famously depicted in a Winslow Homer painting with Orson old mt Phelps called two guides. I've painted it many times from a distance. Never close up. One evening there was a concert of local musicians and, sitting on the ground listening, I looked up at that magnificent pine tree and knew I would have to paint it .  pastel 18x9in
