Well, I missed a few days.  Our power was out all day on Sunday until Monday morning.  Then I wasn't feeling well on Monday and Tuesday.  Oh well...

Summer in the Valley (Mohawk Valley) Oils, 8x8

There is no place like Upstate NY in the summer.  The weather is perfect.  There are rolling hills, farmland, mountains, lakes, rivers, and lots of plush, thick green trees.

Update:  This little piece has just kicked my butt.  Changing mediums is like starting from the very beginning.  I've worked and worked on it until I'm blue in the face.  It might be may not be done.  Who knows!!

3 New Pieces, kinda

Here are three of my newest pieces.  Actually, the first is brand new, done in oils (still wet).  The 2nd is a piece that I finally finished after a couple of years (oil).  The 3rd is also a piece a couple of years in the making.  It is pastel.
