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 http://www.cartermountainorchard.com/; 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"
