While returning from an art show in New York, I spontaneously took a slight detour into Pennsylvania’s Hickory Run State Park from I-80 in the Poconos. The fall foliage was brilliant at that time, so I had to stop and explore this park because I’d heard so many good things about it.

As luck would have it, the state highway leads right to the park office and a small parking area near the trail head for the “Shades of Death” hiking trail. This rather macabre moniker was given to this trail in tribute to the hilly and rough terrain that early settlers to this area encountered.

The renegade part of me really wanted to name this piece “Shades of Death” in honor of this challenging and gorgeous trail, but I knew that title probably would not endear it to many clients. So, I chose a title emblematic of the opposite, in my mind.

This is my very first landscape done in oils. I totally enjoyed creating it and I’m having a blast in this new medium, although I’m finding that there aren’t enough hours in the day for both my pastels and oils. So many ideas, so little time!
