    Your gentle observation last week that a thing of beauty is appreciated by all the senses really hit home for me in this weeks painting. Through its color choices and its wonderfully flowing and graceful composition, I can hear the wind seeping down across the distant mountain and continuing across the vast and open field. I can smell the crispness in the air and almost taste the “snow devils” that sometimes arise without warning, only to disappear as quickly as they came.

    As a daily commuter along 30, I always thought this view would make a great painting!

    Another good spot is in South Granville (NY) on Parker Hill Road(27), from the top of the hill during sun-rise…

    I am one of your many fans and have always loved your paintings. I even had the the good fortune to be one of your students in years past. But for some reason this painting has struck a chord in me like no other and I keep needing to come back to it, to look at it again and again. There is sadness, hope and beauty all at the same time. The image brings to mind a poem by Langston Hughes, (“Dreams”) and its “…barren field frozen with snow.” Thank you for painting this inspiring work.

      Thank you for your sincere comments Jennifer. Art certainly has a language all its own, and the purpose of any language is to communicate effectively. Effective communication takes two. I think we both succeeded on this one.
