From the Hill, Summer #6

I'm back to painting in Vermont today, and ready to welcome the workshop group who is joining me for the next week to explore my home landscape.

This is a wonderful image, Susan, with the tall think trunks catching the violet light.

Really like what you did with these colors. And, what a coincidence, I posted a painting on my blog for friends and family with a similar color composition. You don't have to post my comment. Just got a kick out of the color similarity.

Thank you for writing, Steve. I enjoyed taking a look at your blog.

Welcome home. This is lovely. Vermont certainly looks beautiful, cool and still green. In Texas our greens have moved to a muted shade of dryness. Love the pop of fushia!!

Susan, I love the image of the tall thin tree trunks, catching the violet light. It reminds me of a French landscape; can you be finding France in Vermont?

(I wrote a similar comment a couple days ago, but it wasn't posted; perhaps it didn't go through)

Wow! Love the colors you used. The purple is just awesome and your greens are beautiful. I like your composition, too.

Susan Abbott said...

Thanks for your two notes, Altoon. Since I'm teaching all day this week, my blog attention has suffered!

Susan Abbott said...

Thanks for writing, Debbi. Yes, Vermont is beautiful this (and every other, in my opinion) time of year. We're right about to start a transition to a more mellow color in the landscape, along with hints of cooler weather in the air.

Glad you wrote, Linda--I appreciate your comments. Hard to believe that this green will be gone in a month with the arrival of autumn, replaced by a whole new palette of colors.
