"Walk in Town"

I've painted outside often lately, every day in fact. Tree leaves are moving toward warmer colors and that is a favorite time of year to be working out of doors. Begun last week in a nearby town, this painting was finished in the studio. It was a bright day and I tried to get that. The figure is a friend who lives in the brick house.

Summer Days

The beautiful greens of Pennsylvania summer, they're a challenge to paint from a couple of standpoints. To capture the lushness and variety of an August day without an overload of the color green is the sort of problem that makes painting interesting. Like every aspect of painting a balance is needed, and so the red flag.
This is "Patriot Shepherdstown" 16"X20", currently on view at the Cumberland County Historical Society gallery and shop at 33 west High St. in Carlisle Pa.
Thanks for looking in!
Note: painting sold.
