Another Plein Air Landscape

Mary Herrick Forest Pond

Well, I hit the conservation land again yesterday (just finally got a working scanner tonight  ;-)

I went to Mary A. Herrick Forest, a beautiful property that is managed by The New England Forestry Foundation. Part of the land is used as a Christmas Tree Farm and I have to admit I was a little intimidated when hiking in I came upon a few trucks. I considered turning back,  unsure I was in the right place. I'm glad I continued on......I soon came to a scenic little pond, one side lined with lovely birches, filled with wonderful fall colors. I decided to set up on the birch side of the pond facing a colorful but swampy area where some pine trees were struggling to survive.

This time I was mostly in the sun, and my paints were drying faster than I could work - the opposite problem from earlier this week. I look forward to returning to this area - it is another place really close to home that I had never visited before.
