There is a popular landmark, Talcott Falls, which is about 50 miles from my home, near Adams, N.Y. Last week-end, my wife, Glenda and I drove over to take a look and get some photos. It was a nice day, so it gave us a good excuse to take the convertible for a cruise.
Glenda took some nice snaps and I was totally inspired and have determined that I am definitely going to return for a plein air session.
Although this painting is not truly literal to the actual scene, it was certainly inpired by it. I took a few liberties here and there to refine my composition. There are numerous vantage points and potential areas to choose from on site. Everywhere you look is a possible painting. It's a beautiful spot!
