Back From My Eastern Trip

Top of the Hill 180I got back  2 weeks ago after spending almost 3 weeks in the Catoctin Mountains. My plein air work was done on Arches 150lb paper for oil.  The paper sucked up the paints quickly ( there was no rubbing off if you wanted to remove something) and once on the paper the paint could not be moved around. I shipped my paintings back rather then trying to fly with them.

I was standing on the top of the Catoctin Mountain range looking over towards the Appalachian / Blue Ridge Mountains and looking down on the town of Myersville. That very dark cloud ended up being directly over my head when it decided to let loose, so I grabbed the painting, left my open easel and ran for cover. The rain lasted 5 minutes then I was able to finish.
