View From Van Zandt Road

At last, a chance to paint one of my favorite views.....  Conesus Lake from a farmers field on Van Zant Road in Livonia, NY.

It felt sooooo good to sit in the field and paint the day.  I stopped in at the farm house to ask permission but alas, no one was home.  I did get to pet 2 sweet kitties, and a Rottie jumped against the door when I knocked.  Very good watch dog!

My desire to paint was toooo powerful and it won out over lack of permission.  Hopefully, I'll catch the owners of the farm before we leave and thank them for the use of their field :)  If not, they'll get a surprise print in the mail in the next few weeks :)

Here is where I sat..........


This, my view.........

And, what was behind me.........

A beauty of a day.  Low 80's, no humidity to speak of, a slight breeze on the hill.  I'm glad I brought the golf umbrella though.  I do prefer to sit in the shade as does my pale skin!
