"The Swimming Hole"
Oil on Canvas, 38" x 28"

"This painting has taken on three different looks over the years. Repainting canvases is something I do fairly regularly. I have always improved those paintings which I've I addressed in this way. In this case it was an exercise in taking things away which made the painting better. You can take a look at a previous version in my July 2010 newsletter. Vermont is loaded with places like this. This image is based on one of my sketching forays to Pikes Falls upstream from Jamaica, Vermont."
