Early Morning New Paltz

I painted this scene early this morning for the Mark Gruber Gallery's Paint the Town show. Mark holds this annual plein-aire event for selected artists where the theme of the show is the local New Paltz New York scene. This is a view down Main Street with the Shawangunk Mountains looming in the background. Very early on weekend mornings, just an hour or so after the popular college bars have closed for the night, finds the owner of P&G's, sweeping the street and airing out the bar for the start of a new day.
