Today in Vermont

Fall Colours - 6x8 oil on panel
I'm on the last day of my Vermont interlude, on the road home tomorrow. Lucked in with sunshine for 2 full days and had a great time hiking the forest trails, hanging with girlfriends and painting too. I didn't paint outdoors cuz the wind was crazy, but I was happy to make 8 small panel 'starts' from the comfort of the chalet east facing picture window.  The blue hills create a dynamic contrast against the fall colours. These panels will no doubt evolve a bit more when I get them home to the studio, will probably work into them again.  The colours on some of the trees are gorgeous, though the majority of the leaves have already fallen.


  1. Your Vermont interlude sounded wonderful productive as well as a lot of fun!

    1. It was a wonderful interlude Wendy, although it started off a bit fretful...forgot my passport and only remembered about 1 hour from the border, had to back track 3 hours to pick it up to cross over.!!! senile moment for sure.

    2. Oh, what a pain having to back-track so far! I would have been gnashing my teeth the whole way!


Go ahead...make my day. I love our mini-mails!
