Here I am blogging from a mountain top in Franklin, NC. I arrived Thursday evening for a week-long stay and will be painting along with three other artists in the hills, woods and meadows of this beautiful state.
The weather has been not, unseasonable so according to the locals, but no hotter than what we are experiencing in Ohio this year. It's not even summer yet but the thermometer seems to have no trouble finding the ninety degree mark. I hope this isn't the way the entire summer will go.
I am definitely a novice when it comes to painting mountains but they are interesting subjects.
Here are my first two paintings of a path leading up to the mountains and then another painting I did of a river in downtown Franklin, NC.
