Inspirations and sketches from my studio in the Catskill Mountain. The solitude of my Artist Retreat compels me to keep exploring, seeing, experimenting, and painting all the picturesque quality outside my window.

This sketch started out at sunset. I dont usually sit down with paints till I can abstract a scene. It got dark, & the delightful fire flies came out with the sky full of stars. I layered on some pastel to break up the dark shape. The last stage of using my imagination is usually the most fun. I've always prefer to study sketches for the more unfinished look, more exciting for the viewer??
