Gouche Fantasy of Summer in the Shenandoah

7 1/4" x 4 3/4", Gouache on Plate Bristol Paper, Bid Here
I have always loved the Shenandoah mountains. To me they are a
magical place. I spent a lot of time there many years ago. My memories
of them are some of my most cherished. I go back to them time and
time again.
There is almost nothing as beautiful as a line of several
mountains (not depicted here), moving away from you in the distance,
getting fainter and fainter, and bluer and bluer, until you can't be certain
if you really see it or not - it almost looks transparent.
This is sort of a made-up picture. I had a small photograph. But it
was quite different from this. I also like working in gouache, for reasons
I have given previously.
This may be my last post for quite a while. I am leaving on Thursday
for vacation. I will be back on the 22nd, but as I'll be teaching on the 23rd,
and the 24th is Sunday, I doubt there will be anything here until at least
the 25th -- that is unless I can squeeze in a painting tomorrow, or the next
day with all the other things I have to do. I am taking a laptop with me, so
will not be completely out of reach.
Thanks for stopping by.
