Crozet Pond's Edge

Here is a painting Eileen and I did two weeks ago, hiking through an apple orchard to get this view. I eliminated the black fences to make it a cleaner painting. That is called painter's privilege! This is Jarman's Gap and I live just below the gap, the Appalachian Trail goes right through there too. 12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed, $265. SOLD

Will be taking this up to Wintergreen Resort this weekend for a craft show, usually my best show for the year. They have fireworks on Sunday evening that are fabulous and families bring picnics and blankets to watch . . . always MUCH cooler up on the mountain . . . come on up if you are in the area!
