Into the Woods, original pastel

Living in central Pennsylvania means resigning yourself to the fact that there will be a lot of cloudy days. A lot. When my husband and I first considered moving to this area, a group of his future work colleagues invited us to dinner. During that dinner, one of the individuals mentioned to me how it can be so cloudy here, that eye doctors recommend this area to their patients if they're recovering from eye cancer or other eye surgery.

Yikes!

Suffice it to say, her comment was more of a deterrent to me than anything else.

But I've made my peace with our myriad grey days. In fact, I kind of like them now. The deep, dark forests of Pennsylvania are magical, like something from your childhood imagination and a Grimm fairy tale. Pennsylvania is home to the mushroom capital of the world and if you're an ambitious hiker, you can discover spectacular scenery on an overcast day, deep in the woods.

This recent piece is from Poe Valley State Park just outside of State College along one of the hiking trails that traces along the top of one of the mountains in that area. In contrast to some of the splashy, colorful cityscape subjects that I enjoy, landscape subjects like this are a celebration of quiet contemplation.
