This was painted in The Great Swamp, which runs through Putnam and Dutchess Counties. I painted it on location in Pawling, New York, beside the Appalachian Trail. It was one of those times when I really felt like exploring the possibilities of acrylic paint with drips and spatters, which seemed quite appropriate as spring was bursting all around me in scattered leaf forms and brilliant yellow-greens.
I did this on watercolor paper to take advantage of the color blending capabilities in the initial stages. I also happen to love acrylic on paper more than anything else. There is something about water media that just adores paper supports. The advantage using acrylic on paper is that it can still be varnished and framed without glass just like an oil painting or an acrylic on canvas. In this case though, I really liked the look of the painting with the mat surrounding it to give it some breathing room, so it is being matted to 20×16″ and framed with glass and a beautiful gold wood frame to bring out the sparkle of spring. Acrylic is the most archival material out there, so I love working in this versatile medium that I know will last for generations to come.
Most of my early spring work, including this one, has already been claimed by RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon, NY. You’ll be able to see this painting and more at RiverWinds starting the Second Saturday in July. The painting can be purchased at the gallery, here through my website, or by calling RiverWinds during their regular business hours.
