Pastel Plein Air

Painted this week in New Paltz.
I can get a lot of info into a shorter painting session with pastels. I don't have to work so hard a edge detailing -where I would have to be very focused with palette knife work and the edges of fan brushes to get the delicate lines that I can achieve with a single drawn stroke of a hard pastel stick.

Huguenot Street in New Paltz.

Cabin in the Woods

I painted this at my friends house in the northeast kingdom of Vermont in Barnet.
A beautiful early 18th century house in the woods with a room of antiques that resembles
 a mountain man's cabin in the woods, with all the accoutremonts of the time.
A special place I stayed at for a few weeks while they were away, only me, my paints, the dogs,a cat, a horse, and a ghost.

Here's my encaustic painting,Hudson Valley Sunset,
which is featured in the Art Along the Hudson exhibition and event
 on view at the Jacaruso Gallery in Rhinebeck, New York
