Pasley Falls, Indian Lake, NY


Last fall we hiked to this beautiful spot in Indian Lake. It was a little bit hard to find, as the trail had become overgrown, but we made it, with the dogs. I usually have my camera with me on all our hikes, but this time I had to use my cell phone. Call phones in Indian Lake are only good for photos, as finding a cell signal is sketchy, at best. Anyway, the photo came out great and two weeks ago I finally got around to doing a pastel from it. It was raining and I set up on the porch. I got very detailed with it but I wanted it to look like an early 1900's painting. That's the feel we got when we hiked back there and I hope this painting has the same feel to it.

I haven't had much of a chance to paint lately, as we've had our granddaughter with us for the last month. I take her back to Florida tomorrow for five days, then I can paint to my heart's desire!
