Weeping Willow

As fall approaches, the parks in our area are especially beautiful.  In the Adirondacks, we can't grow weeping willows, but in Saratoga Springs, just one hour and fifteen minutes away, the parks are full of them.  This park is right near downtown Saratoga Springs, and very close to the carousel for the children.  A gorgeous park in a very vibrant and busy community.

Shaded Path to the Lake

I have been so busy this summer with grand kids visiting so painting has been put on the back burner for awhile.  I've missed it, though,  and now that everyone has gone home and the house is quiet, I have started painting again.  This was done a few weeks ago.  We walk down to our lake in the mornings with the dogs and it's always so peaceful.  The quality of the light through the trees just gets more pleasing to me every time we walk there.  And, of course, the lake itself, is the special gift at the end of this shaded path.
