“Trees At Black Pond” – 15″ x 22″

An impressionistic and energetic interpretation of summer light on pine trees near Black Pond – part of the Visitors Interpretation Center (VIC) at Paul Smith’s College.

Most of my en plein air landscape paintings are attempts at creating a reasonably accurate depiction of the scene.  Occasionally, something about the scene strikes a chord that leads me in a different direction.

The trunks of these pine trees alternated between brilliant light and deep shadow.  In my mind’s eye, the deep shadows took on rich, almost vivid color – at least in comparison to the others around them.  A less representational interpretation seemed to be in order!
