Glens Falls: more dam water.

34  F  cloudy with 1/2 minute of sun.
I went to Glens Falls today to drop some paintings off, then to Lake George to see the paintings of my friend, Liz Coyne.

#451 Hudson River @ Glens Falls

7 x 10

I came to this spot because the paper mill by the falls is pretty awesome, I'm along the "feeder canal trail".

I hadn't painted for a while, but my pallet was still wet! (sort of) shows just how lazy.....anyway, here I started by putting down the warm lights, and I did use the Gamblin paint.  (I had forgotten my brushes, so I walked back ten minutes to my van which I scoured and found one stray brush)

 Cool whites  (well blue)

 Having one brush, a #8 flat which I don't use, was a bit of a handicap, but it was the only one so I was happy to have it.

This feels so crude to me.

The day's brush.

Here is where I ended up. I've been doing a lot of "other things" Which I keep off the blog, but it's been cloudy and rainy and who wants paintings of cloudy days or rain, I don't even want them! so I move appliances and do the recycling, bla bla bla.....

I almost caught the moment a bit of sun raked over the bridge.....

Sight-size shot.  I wanted to do a video today, but after the brush debacle.......

I first found this on the map. the official parking area is off a side street, but the trail crosses the main road  10 minutes trudging in over snow, (and the subject bridge) which is State Route 9.
