|Mill Valley Road, Hadley - sold|
I went out early and made this painting, as the clouds and fog and humidity rolled in. This is a gorgeous area - with bustling little urban villages, strip malls with good stores, and a half a mile outside, gorgeous farmland.
It was a pleasure to set up early and paint, smell the grass and the sky, the scent of cows not so far off, and then go into the hot and crowded Paradise City Barn and talk art with people all day.
Three paintings sold Sunday, including this fresh, local plein air piece. So how GREAT is that?
I am tired today, but I am hopeful and optimistic. I continue to feel blessed. The people who are buying my paintings are not just buying things to decorate with - they love these paintings, and are feeling them deep in their souls. It's tremendously exciting, tremendously affirming - and FUN!
The Paradise City Art Festival runs until 5 p.m. today, here at the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, Mass. So come! I'm in the Morgan Barn, Booth 317.
