Catskill Mountain House Vista

This is the vista overlooking the Catskill Mountains; the villages of Catskill, Saugerties ET.AL. can be seen from this view. The Hudson rolls in the very background of this painting, the small white area in front of the final mountain range in the sketch. It was very very hazy, atmospheric perspective at its best; blue, cool, misty. Storms rolling in from the west. Ghosts whisper in the trees along the mountain top. Names, dates, dreams, and loves etched into the rock ledge that graciously provided a table for my work.

Perhaps I should run a class one summer. Painting in the Catskills. If I only had that lovely mansion in Catskill...oh the things we could do. Anyone want to invest with me? LOL. patti
