Pioneer Valley
oil on canvas

This is a quick little painting I made last month when I went out painting with a friend.

Because I am a painter and not a record keeper, there is always a generous amount of editing and fictionalization when I paint from observation.

The landscape inspires me, energizes me, and moves me to paint, but I won't feel beholden to its appearance.
What's the sense of that?

So, because I know you are curious, here's a snapshot of the view.

  1. It is lovely. I love the red under painting peeking through.
