The farmhouse on Sloan Road in Williamstown, MA which I've painted at least a couple dozen times from much higher up at the top of the road looking across the valley towards Mount Greylock and The Hopper. I love its changing shadows as the sun moves across the sky. 9x12 inches, oil on panel.

This year when I've visited Sloan Road in Williamstown, MA to paint, I've confined myself to pastures and hay fields. Lately I've wanted to include structures in my paintings, so I set up on the side of Sloan Road yesterday where I can see this farm house and its driveway. The tree was nice too. 9x12 inches, oil on panel.

Here is a slight charcoal drawing, perhaps, that I did prior to the painting I posted yesterday. It was important for me to determine how to compose the painting as well as suggest the energy of the parts making up the whole of it. 9x12 inches.

With the corn stalks gone, the mountain appears larger. It's Mount Prospect, which hides the taller Mount Greylock behind it. The Appalachian Trail goes up to the top of Mount Prospect, where there's a clearing from which you can see most of Williamstown, MA, but not this spot where I was standing with my easel. 10 x 20 inches, oil on panel.

On a day with a clear sky I painted on the grounds of the Park-McCullough Mansion in North Bennington. There's something calming about this place. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's because I want it so much. 9x12 inches, oil on panel.

Yesterday it was sunny, cloudy, and windy, over and over again. So I went on a walk with my sketchpad. This is a view down Blair Road in Williamstown, MA. looking west towards the Taconic Mountains in New York State. 9x12 inches, charcoal on paper.

Here I used a wider format to capture the sky and mountains and mowed corn field off of Luce Road in Williamstown, MA yesterday. The view looks north into Vermont. Everything had a kind of liquid, fluctuating aspect. 10 x 20 inches, oil on panel.
