Introducing the summits of New Hampshire. This beautiful 18 x 24 oil painting on canvas depicts the highest peaks of the Whites, known as the Presidential Range. This oil painting has arrived just before the election. Perhaps it will instill a bit of patriotic pride and reminder of the grandeur of our country and greatness of our nation.

The foreground was the concentration for today. My next step will be adding the trees in the background along with defining the vegetation.
For the first day of this painting project, I accomplished the sky and mountains and by the end of tomorrow I plan on adding the pond and evergreens. I have been focusing on values from light to dark as each mountain was painted from left to right. So far, no underpaint was applied during this process and small sections of the canvas are being painted generously. I will be overlapping the trees over the brush which will provide depth and a rich sense of texture. I have been noting a lot of fascinating and unusual features in this painting which adds interest and intrigue. I have a hunch this painting will be done shortly!

This new oil painting is called Pine Cathedral in the Woods. It is actually from the pine pathway from the famous Yaddo Garden in Saratoga, New York. I chose this location to paint from because of the rich variation and difference of each pine. Pine has such an enduring quality and invites the viewer to feel its strength and prominent presence.
