View From Carter Mountain

A few weeks ago Meg West invited me to join her up at Carter Mountain Orchard for a painting outing. I set up on the back deck of the shop, and this painting was the result. If you're ever in Charlottesville, it's worth a visit to this orchard, one of my favorite views (and energetic centers) of a beautiful part of the world. In fact, it turns out that Carter Mountain Orchard's second annual Peach Festival, complete with free hayrides, is going on there today and tomorrow. See; it's on the road to Monticello, look for the sign on the right.

This painting is one of several now hanging at Java Dragon Coffee Shop, Preston Plaza, Charlottesville. It's apparently a good representation — as soon as I hung it, a customer said "That looks like the view from Carter Mountain."

Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"
