Gallery 8

       These paintings were done in 2011 – 2014, after I moved to Washington County, New York (15 miles east of Saratoga Springs). Washington County lies between the Hudson River and the Vermont border and the terrain is a series of foothills and ridges going east toward the Green Mountains. The Battenkill River is a major tributary of the Hudson. It runs from around Manchester, Vermont, down through my little town of Greenwich (an old factory village). The area contains many industrial ruins. My primary interest is the human imprint on this particular landscape.
