Plein Air Painting

In Pennsylvania where we live, old farm houses like this are common . On this particular day last Spring, the owner was curious and walked out to chat.
Authentic detail is something I look for during the work in progress and so the property owner was added to the painting. His dog remained indoors, a relief, the booming sound of the dogs' bark told me he was not friendly!

Indian Summer

The nor-easter that wrought havoc in the northeast is done and warmth has returned in our corner of the world. Painting the hills is work, riding an old British bike through those hills is great fun.
