Even in Winter
This oil painting has the same proportions as yesterday's, but is larger, 18x24 inches. It also displays a new location for me, Constitution Hill in Lanesborough, MA. This view is at the bottom of the hill. The landscape painter Neil Welliver commented once how the woods are a "mess". He was able to bring some order to the woods in his paintings, but to me the "mess" is inherent to the woods. One can be standing in the woods, and looking, and looking, and still not be able to see clearly. Even in winter the woods are a mess, but the ground, if snow covered, at least is much simpler.
