At the Forest's Edge


This is the second deer painting.  I'll be donating this one to the arts center for their February 5th fundraiser.

Canoeing Henderson Lake


This past summer, we went canoeing on Henderson Lake, which is near the high peaks region of the Adirondack Park.  From this lake you can look out and see the mountain that leads to Indian Pass, an incredible natural wonder, painted by many artists in the 19th century.  Many of the canoers actually decided to paddle Henderson, then carry their canoes one mile to paddle another, smaller lake at the end of a hiking trail.  Needless to say, we didn't do that, even with Hornbeck canoes, which weigh only eight pounds.  Here's a painting of Eileen, who is trying to canoe as many Adirondack lakes as she can in the next few years.  She's a real inspiration.

Sunset on Long Lake


After visiting Lake Placid a few weeks ago, Bill and I were coming through Long Lake just as the sun was setting over the lake.  Long Lake is just that......a very long lake, with an incredible mountain range in the distance.  This pastel was done from a photo where I used the zoom lense to get a shot close up on those mountains.
