I did this painting from a photograph taken by Bryan Wahrer while he was on a vacation in New England some time ago.  Bryan is a very gifted photographer who was also a former student of mine while in high school.  He was also a gifted artist.  As you can see he has a fine eye for composition.  Thank you, Bryan, for allowing me to use this beautiful photo.


The painting is 9" x 11" and is painted on Fluid 100 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
