Path Across Mountain Fields - Lin Frye

Path Across Mountain Fields

I painted this scene from memory when C and I were in the mountains of NC. We had taken a walk through the woods, up the hill, across the stream, and at the opening in the forest came upon this view of the Smokey Mountains and former orchard. When we finished our hike, I painted this from the desk in the cabin ....

It's been a rough week of extraordinarily hot temperatures, and though the coastal counties have had a bit of rain, we're still scorched. Our Plant a Row for the Hungry folks come earlier and earlier to pick the vegetables, weed the garden and have a gardening lesson -- long before the worst heat of the day. Still, after an hour outdoors in the heat and humidity, we are all dripping wet and ready for air-conditioned relief. And to think we still have August (our worst heat month) to go ....

Stay cool .... and keep those brushes splashing!
