Red trillium. I really like these flowers and I only had to walk to Tennessee to see them.

Trillium reliquum

Undercast in North Carolina. a view from one of the many balds. a bald being a mountain with a meadow top.

Descending from a mountain in NY. Seeing the river and the distant towns through the haze was surprisingly pretty.

This is from a photo I took while I was on the Appalachian Train in the 100 mile wilderness in Maine. Early October in Maine is beautiful and it was nice to find a stream with beautiful foliage and cool water todrink from.
so I dont have a editing program to run my photos through anymore. these next few are going to be a bit rough but I think you will get a good idea about what is going on in the paintings.

I still dont know what kind of flowers those were. An added bonus to a walk in the lowlands of the White Mountains.

I am always captivated by all the colors of the out doors. I was exceptionally impressed with the colors and layers from the view East off the top of Mount Eisenhower.

Also growing in the area of Garfield campsite, there was a 50' patch of golden rod in bloom that summer that attracted all sorts of wild life. including a little white butterfly.

These were the white aster that were growing outside of my 12' x 12' canvas tent when I was care taking Garfield shelter, in the white mountains.

I had been toying with the idea of making this a diptych for a long time and I finally did it. It looks great so is now two 12" x 12" paintings.

This is an older painting from the first summer I was living in the White mountains. Hiking along the ridge is quit beautiful, even when it is socked in with clouds.
