It's just after 6:00 When I stopped work on this is it "day 1" or not? ask the shadow that took over.
This is Salem Art Works, (saw hill) in Salem, NY, and about the third time from this particular spot.
I went up there it was their Iron pour, lots of college kids and hot metal. It's also Alumnae weekend @ Bennington College, and I saw a few old friends there, and that's always good.
I was visiting with friends, as the sun was setting, I got to my spot, it must have been about 5:00 and knew I'd have to work ridiculously fast. (I had started a few minutes before I took this pic, and the sun was on the run, moving off of the bright tree in the center.
Speed kills, so they say. I got the canvas covered in record time using my pallet knife, mixing the basic areas and throwing them on. I don't recommend this!
I was pretty much lost at this point, I didn't want to chase that rabbit, but lights had become dark and darks were now well defined (not so dark).
I panicked and started to paint what I thought I had seen, I hadn't had enough to go on so there was a mess on my hands.
This is the painting I sold at the North Country Art Association's Chestertown Gallery. It's the Beaver (Hess) pond in Inlet NY.
