Finding Inspiration Part 2
This piece was inspired by a turn-of-the-century postcard of the Notch, looking towards Hunter Mountain.
Normally I work from my own photograph, and when I can, plein air, but I was intrigued by this image and wanted to paint it. It needs a few touch ups here and there..a little more brightness and color in a few places, but I was totally inspired by such a small piece of paper, from a time where there were no billboards, few cars, and the Catskills were far less marred by the existence of our culture.
Back to the grunt work of running a business. It's got to be done!
