A Very Special Place

I've attempted to paint this scene a few times, but could never quite handle it.  After a great deal of thinking and contemplating, I tried it again.  It's of a beautiful place in the Adirondacks, just up the road from Old Forge on Rondaxe Road.  It was a very cold autumn day when I took the photos, but the colors in this marsh were just amazing!!

Inspired by Bob Rohm's Painting - For Learning Purposes Only

For learning purposes only, I painted this tonight.  It is one of Bob Rohm's paintings from his book The Painterly Approach.  I've been feeling stagnant lately regarding my work; feeling like I'm spinning my wheels and not growing as an artist, so I took out this book and painted one of Mr. Rohm's paintings.  His was done in oils.  I learned a great deal and am very pleased with the outcome. 5x7 Not For Sale.

Autumn in August

As true as it is today, when I was growing up in Upstate New York I loved autumn so much.  There wasn't a day that went by in the summer that I didn't think about the coming of fall.  The colors, the cool weather, I loved everything about it including the snow that followed.  This piece was inspired from a photo I took from Old Forge, New York.  I was standing at Maple Ridge, the first ski area in Old Forge.
