Small Paintings

 I have started on a series of small 8 X 10 acrylic paintings on canvas board. I am learning something new from each one.  This is a fall view of the boatramp at Dorrs Pond in Manchester, NH.  I have several other paintings of this pond. It is near my house and I can have a good walk around the pond.  I love it in every season, but autumn is special.

This was a muddy day on a trail in Hooksett, NH.  Originally I had done a watercolor painting on a Fredrix watercolor canvas. I never liked it and put it away in a drawer.  I finally convinced myself one day last week to start cleaning out old drawers and when I found this canvas, I thought I would try overpainting my original with acrylic paint. I like the way it came out this time.
