"Wild Goose Chase"
5" x 5"
Engraving Acrylic and Watercolor
The latest in my engraved series based on the play of words using the names of animals. Inspired by the invasion of Canadian Geese on our lake recently, I'm certainly glad they haven't staked out my pathways, yet!
"Paradise Meadow Tree Study” 9.5" x 8"
"Paradise Meadow Sunrise" 9" x 13"
Oil sketch on Canvas
These two sketches were painted during a Mt Washington 'paint-out' last fall. To take advantages of the best light, I was in position on the boardwalk surrounding Paradise Meadows by 5 am with my paints and a hot coffee. Accompanied by the ever present Whiskey Jacks, sharing my muffin, the solitude and beauty was overwhelming. Eventually these sketches will become the basis of larger, studio paintings.
