"Mt Washington Sunrise", "Albert Edward Sunrise", "Albert Edward Moon at Dawn" Oil Sketches
My annual trek to Mt Washington at the end of August, again provided a wealth of material. These three were all 'up at the break of dawn' paintings to capture the gorgeous colors just as the sun is lighting the sky and the mountain ranges.
