floater frames since I like the way they look. Photo below shows my painting of Mount Willard in a floater frame. These are both acrylic paintings, 16" X 20" on stretched canvas. I enjoy working on this size canvas. My earlier posts give more information on the hike.
Both of these scenes are in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire. This is a beautiful area of the state for hiking. There are many places on the highway where you can just pull into a parking area and take photos (for the non-hikers). This is in the White Mountains of NH, about 3 hours drive north of Boston. Route 302 is generally kept open, even in the winter.
I have a few more fall classes to finish up my small oil paintings. I also started a workshop on palette knife painting. I have learned the difference now between palette knives and painting knives. I'm looking forward to my class this Thursday. We have already prepared an underpainting to work on, a little scene with mountains, trees and grass. It should be fun to play with.
I have been preparing my card inventory for my next craft show which is coming up soon. Saturday, Nov. 9th at Brookside Church, 2013 Elm Street, Manchester, NH, 9-3. This will be my 4th year displaying at this fair. I share a table with my husband, author Joe Smiga and we enjoy meeting with all the people there and looking at the other tables. It's a good place to pick up gift items, or items for yourself. See you there.

Arches photos and will do the others soon. You can click on that link to see the rest of the photos. I loved the fall colors of the cottonwoods and aspens.
