AUTUMN ROAD


I also did this painting while at Wayland. It's from a photo taken of the road in front of our land in Vermont.

AUTUMN INSPIRATION



After getting my photos printed from a fabulous weekend in Wayland, I was immediately inspired to begin painting. "Reflections in Green" was done while at Wayland, and "Golden Larches" was completed yesterday.

FALL FOLIAGE IN WAYLAND, NY




Last weekend, my two best friends and I spent a glorious weekend in Wayland, NY, at our house. We went up to paint and had a wonderful time -- good food, ample uninterrupted painting time, some wine, and beautiful walks to take pictures of the foliage. The foliage was a little past peak, but it was still magnificent when the sunlit hit it. Here are just a few of the photos that I took.

MY FAVORITE TREE


This is a pastel painting of a beautiful tree by the pond on our land in NY. The view is from the house. I love the sweeping branches of this pine and its perfect shape.

LEAF PEEPING IN NH






Yesterday, Bob and I went "leaf peeping" in NH. We traveled many country roads and ended up at Mount Sunapee, where we took the chair lift to the top of the mountain. The foliage wasn't at its peak yet, but it sure was beautiful. There was still a lot of color. Here are some pictures.
