“Variations on the theme” is apt terminology often used in music, but it’s equally appropriate in art.
My recurring theme over the last week has been the Ottauquechee River.
This Woodstock view exemplifies what I love about October… color, mood, and nature’s graceful transition.
As an added bonus, I’ve also learned to spell it. More recent Ottauquechee paintings below.
Size: 12X16 (auctioned unframed)
Medium: Oil on panel
Last week I was pleased to participate in the annual Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) Plein Air Festival. It was great to meet and paint with some wonderful artists.
The excellent raptor exhibit at the Quechee location is something everyone should see!
“Ottauquechee Morning” 18X24 Oil on panel. This painting was awarded Best of Show. (Sold) This was painted from a bridge in the Village of Woodstock. I’m pretty skittish around heights, so this took some courage on my part to paint.
“Ottauquechee Afternoon” 18X24 Oil on panel. Another view in Woodstock, this one looking back at the bridge I painted from earlier in the day. This painting is now available.
“Wilderness Waterway” 18X24 Oil on panel. This view (loosely) depicts the area where the Ottauquechee originates, at the foot of Killington Mountain. I started this painting a couple of weeks ago at the Sparkle Barn demonstration in Wallingford. I finished it Friday, but not in time to frame and bring to Art in The Park this past weekend. This painting is now available.
