Wow, it’s already mid-summer. Soon it will be the end of those long lazy nights here in Upstate New York. Tonight was one of those evenings , where there is something in the air you can’t quite put your finger on, but something that tells you it’s just that time of year. I will try to hold onto these precious nights before they disappear with the season .
This painting was painted on one of those evenings in a place called Stockport Flats, which is filled with lush vegetation, and still green waters. It’s by no means considered a spectacular area,… I hadn’t known about it , and wasn’t looking for it, but rather stumbled upon it. Nonetheless, as I watched the sun setting on the water I couldn’t help but think what a gift this place was, and how wonderful midsummer evenings feel. ~Rita
