We spent a couple weeks in the summer of 2019 visiting friends and family in Vermont. This river trail in the town of Warren has really beautiful rock formations shaped by water and ice.
The Fourth of July was fun at Jimmy and Elaine’s house in Vermont. Games, swimming, music, eating, and drinking. What could be better? This was a particularly competitive cribbage game, but I think Jimmy had the upper hand.
The Greensprings Trail is my favorite walk. It is always shady and cool, with subtle color changes throughout the year. This is where I forest bathe and regroup.
I love fall colors. F
The palette is completely different at this time of year, but shades of summer remain in the understory. I like the way the late afternoon light filters through the trees.
I started this painting earlier with a loose oil sketch. I was going to keep painting, but Richard asked me to stop here. So I kept this version and started again. It's an interesting juxtaposition. I think I would like to work towards a place between these two versions.
