Bike Talk

 

I’m always looking for new places to go relatively close to where I live. Early one morning, my husband and I went to Port Jervis where we saw this man resting with his bike in the park. My husband started talking to him about bicycles. For me, the most important thing was the reflection of the bike on the ground and the interesting composition of the two figures on a beautiful spring day.

Canal and Liberty Square

 

My village of Ellenville in the valley. A melting pot of people, a rich history of pioneers, and a beautiful view of the mountains.

Farm in the Distance

 

The beauty of the area where I live has inspired plein air painters for over a hundred years, and now I feel inspired too, at Kelder’s farm.

Kingston City Hall

 

What attracted me to this building is the architecture, the red color of the bricks, and its position at the top of the hill. I drew the original 1873 building, prior to the present remodeling, from an old postcard. That inspired me to do this one. It shows an evolution in architecture that is interesting to me.

Kingston Lighthouse

 

My husband and I like to kayak at Kingston Point Beach. When approaching the lighthouse you can see its reflection in the water and it creates a soothing sensation to me.

Mohonk Gatehouse

 

Sometimes, when I go to New Paltz, I feel compelled to stop the car and take a photo of the Mohonk Gatehouse. It depends on the season or the time of day. The trees and the building make the landscape majestic and I feel transported to another era.

Old Post Office

 

The old post office in Kingston is one of the reasons I do the sketches. The buildings of the cities teach us the history of other eras that are important to remember for future generations. Besides, the architecture was beautiful.

Pansies all Around

 

Pansies are one of my favorite flowers and I always see them at the market in early spring. They come in different colors and color combinations, making it easy to make a composition that pleases my senses.

Saugerties Lighthouse

 

I have depicted the lighthouse before from the ground, but this time from the river. The perspective of everything changes from the water and it is a new and exciting experience.

Smiley’s Tower

 

From the road you can see at the top of the mountain the Smiley’s Tower Monument, which is part of the Mohonk preserve. What attracted me to make a sketch of this building was the architecture and how the light hits it. It is one of the most stunning views of the region.

Spring Bouquet

 

When spring comes, all I want is to paint flowers. After going through a difficult winter, I just want to put color in everything I see and remind myself that it is always spring.

Tangerines

 

I was inspired to paint this still life by the color of the tangerines. They were the reddest orange tangerines I had ever seen. The color red is one of the most difficult colors to represent and I think it closely captures the color of the fruit.

The Garden Gnome

 

I couldn’t resist the temptation to do this sketch of the second largest garden gnome in the world. Kelder’s farm in Kerhonkson is one of the biggest attractions in this area for children and adults, and located in one of my favorite areas to paint.

Woodridge, NY

 

The village of Woodridge as it was prior to 1971. It was in the heart of the Borscht Belt in the Catskill Mountains. It no longer looks like that. This is how my father-in-law remembers his hometown.

Zinnias in a Blue Pot

 

Sometimes, people believe that still life is not an art, or that flowers are easy to paint. From my experience, flowers are as difficult to represent, or more so, than any three dimensional form, and the colors make me happy.
