Weekend in the Berkshires

 Konkapot River Waterfall, 2013, oil on linen mounted on panel, 12 x 9 inches
Took a four day getaway with some friends for the 4th of July weekend, this has turned out to be a yearly summer ritual that takes us out of the city and into the country. This year we rented a house in the Berkshires, MA, and these are the paintings I got done in the backyard.

Hi Georgi, yes all these paintings were done over the weekend. The first one was done completely on site over a period of three hours. The second painting I spent about two hours on site and another two hours indoors, and the final painting I spent almost two hours on site and another hour indoors.
