Today I visited Manchester, Vermont, and painted at the home of friends, in their backyard, which has this tremendous view. It was hot, but my trusty umbrella helped, and I didn't linger, though it took me a while to figure out exactly what I was going to do. If a neighbor had been looking on, they would have seen me move my easel about five times before I settled in. Hopefully you get a sense of the heat and glare. I was on top of a rise looking down on a field with a few trees. The painting is an 11x14 oil on panel.
