Blair at Stratton
This morning I went up to the top of Stratton Road, walked into the field, and made the 9x12 charcoal drawing of trees and bushes that reside on the edge of Blair Road, which abuts with the top of Stratton. Then it occurred to me: why are you overlooking this most obvious place to paint. You can park easily, you have multiple views, and the neighbors are friendly. So I came back in the afternoon and did the above 9x12 oil on panel painting. As I looked around, I realized that just in this spot alone, I could make a dozen paintings.
