Above Travel Town
9x12 oil on linen
I got together with some old friends for a little PA painting last week. We first went to the Western Masters show at the Aurty and a quick lunch at the Golden Spur. Show was good, the food passable... our general consensus was this Cyrus Afsary was the best landscape,
but the Daniel Pinkham’s blew me away. We had planed to paint at the Train museum nearby (Travel Town) but it was closed. Making the best of a disappointing situation we walked up the road above Travel town, set up, and painted the water tank and the surrounding area. It was great getting back outside for the first time in many months. Vadim is my figure teacher, but seemed to enjoy a rare landscape outing. Ex students Bill Moore and Richard Scott rounded out the gang. I think we all did a good painting that day, I forgot how nice it is to just paint outside. They can't all be dark brooding studio paintings... ;-)
