Oil on Canvas
A view across the valley near Montville. I was driving between Mapleton and Montville when I came around a bend a caught this view out of the corner of my eye. Fortunately I managed to pull over and take some photos and do a brief study on paper of the scene.
I've painted it several times since. This version is indicative of my evolving style away from realism and trying to paint the subject literally to a looser more expressive and some what abstracted view of the landscape. For me it is all about capturing the feeling of a place.
Note - This painting does not require a frame. It is ready to hang with painted edges
