Grange Hall at Woodstock

June 21, 2017

Grange Hall at Woodstock – Oil on Canvas – 20″ x 20″

I had a longscape (12″ x 24″), which I had started plein air. Unable to finish the painting on-site, I brought the unfinished work home. Unfortunately, life got in the way of me making a prompt return to finish this scene. I tried to complete the work in my studio, bit realized that I made the work too stiff. I killed the fresh spontaneity of the plein air start. The panel would need to be destroyed.

While sitting in the “to be killed” pile in the studio, I noticed how another failure cropped the initial painting and hinted at an interesting option. Ran with the idea.  Received contact from one of my gallery’s which has expressed interest in carrying this work.
