Looking North into the Haze on the AT
The haze never quite burned off after I reached the top of Greylock yesterday morning. The spot where I set up is on the Appalachian Trail next to the road. The view is looking north towards North Adams, MA. I met several hikers, both women and men, all walking by themselves. I asked them where they were going. "Maine." I asked them where they started from. "Georgia." This is the time when they should be going through this spot if they hope to make it to the end. Some didn't linger, and some spoke for quite a while. All were interesting people. This painting is a 12x16 oil on panel. I hope to revisit this spot on a clear day since I want to paint those humpy mountains again.
A passerby in a car asked if she could take my picture. I asked her to send it to me. You can see the guard rail separating me from the cars.
