Wow! It’s now been nine years of plein air landscape painting in central Pennsylvania’s Black Moshannon State Park. And while it has taught me a ton in terms of understanding light and the changing seasons, I feel like I still have so much to learn.

This latest piece is very timely since we’ve had just boatloads of rain in our area throughout this summer. The mosquitoes are intense, so for this piece I set up along the wooden boardwalk that traces along the perimeter of the water. I’m becoming increasingly interested in interior woodland scenes, but in the midst of a soggy summer, it’s tough to pull that off. Plein air painting loses some of its charm when the mosquitoes dive bomb your head. So, to the open spaces I go! And this lovely view across the bog as evening settled in was perfect.
