Entering the Catskills


16"x20" oil/canvas
I've had this image in my head since February and stored on my computer just as long. I took the shot on the way to ski in the catskills and found it just wonderful. However, I felt it was too busy to be a good painting. Well it finally clicked. For those who know the area this is near the town of Fleishmans. Just as you enter the Catskills national park. I want to do the river but time is limited. And yes the studio is still insanely hot. Oddly enough, when painting I'm not even aware of temperature. While typing, it is all too apparent! Off to the Rehoboth art league show this weekend. Tomorrow I'll be reframing the many paintings that have been knicked and chipped during the many travels they have seen and wind gusts that decided they would be happier on the asphalt than on the panels. Cheers
