There is a special place here on Long Island called the "North Fork". It is filled with wineries and farms, and it is quaint and charming, all the things I find so appealing when looking for landscapes to paint. The lighting is especially alluring, and I find the opportunities to paint endless. I can easily come away from a Sunday afternoon with a hundred photos in my camera. This painting is a result of one of those Sunday afternoons. I've so far painted five pastels of this special place, and I know I can come up with more, I probably will!
