"Charlton Pond" was painted on the most beautiful autumn day at the edge of a small pond in West Charlton, NY...just down the road from my friend Debbie's house who was also there painting with me. We had driven around the area for quite some time before choosing this location. 

There were many other beautiful spots I would have loved to paint but...the reality with plein air painting is that if there's no where to park your car along the road and a small flat area to set up an easel, you are out of luck. 

Today's Quotation:  Do it no matter what. If you believe in it, it is something very honorable. If somebody around you or your family does not understand it, then that's their problem. But if you do have a passion, an honest passion, just do it.
-Mario Andretti
