These paintings of the landscape around Washington County, New York, were made in 2020, except for two that date from back to 2016-18 I hadn’t posted before. Sometimes it takes me a long time to decide whether I consider them worthy of publication. I am increasingly interested in the human detritus on the landscape.  The contrast between all that and the natural beauty of this region, can be startling. All were painted sur le motif.
