For a visual person, our long winter has too much greys & browns. On a boring Winter's day, heading over to Delhi, NY makes for a colorful break. Most of the buildings on Main St are from 1800's. STEWARTS on Main St, is my go-to resource for pretty things. It has something for everyone. From local tea to tempting home decor.

Another contemplative meditation on the process of painting. After many days of endless grey, the sun finally show up!
Frosty Pink is the perfect name to describe this hue. The pink sunrise glow melts into different shades of browns, pretty quickly.
Always a good idea to have some pre-mix colors for my nocturne... the winter landscape can be monotonous, but the sky can offer me endless color combination to play with.

Each season brings its own beauty & inspirations. Familiar winter view from my studio. A typical snowy scene of the Catskill Mountain.
I have another new design to add to my Winter Collection.

My training in illustration gives me the skill to paint anything in a realistic way, in the comfort of my studio.
I also enjoy my detours into artistic investigation with landscapes. With each canvas, one sought to capture one glorious inspirational moment.

My horse reference came from my visits to ROSEMARY FARM, a local horse sanctuary that's in my backyard.
The best part of photoshop is that I can combine my fine art onto my illustrations. I can create as many new designs as I want from a few vignettes. Click HERE, to see more equestrian designs from one painted horse.

Purple & Orange, this is the best time to appreciate the beauty of trees, silhouetted against a glowing sunset.

Dont forget to look up at the moon tonight. The last time we had a super moon was 67 years ago. Due to optical illusion, the moon appears gigantic at moon rise & moon set.
|Brilliant moonset at 5:30am this morning|
