Re: Massachusetts to the 'Northwest Princedom', Stow etc.

Thanks, Aspen, for all your kind words. The triptych was one of my most interesting commissions, a large dining room wall to cover (the paintings are designed to hang about a foot apart). It's US 23 in southern Ohio, maybe 20-30 miles from my wife's hometown, set in the 1930s-40s. I worked from aeri...

Jeffersonville/Cambridge: Pleasant Valley and Bryce Road

[Edit: Forgot to acknowledge the source. The people at Visions of Vermont, a great gallery on Main Street in Jeffersonville, turned us on to this route.] After you've trekked from Stowe to Jeffersonville via Smuggler's Notch via Route 108, you'll reach a Y. Bear left onto Church st. (if you bear rig...

Re: Massachusetts to the 'Northwest Princedom', Stow etc.

Wrapping up: At the end of this post, a re-try with the photos. [a bit later: preview shows broken links... If these don't show, they are in my Flicker Photostream, http://www.flickr.com/photos/60233898@N00/10068423666/ All in all, this was one of our best mini-vacations. The weather was perfect, as...

Re: Massachusetts to the 'Northwest Princedom', Stow etc.

I upload mine from Smugmug- choosing "medium" embeddable links has worked well! Hmm - I'm uploading from my computer and don't seem to have any option for which kind of upload (e.g., 'medium'). I'll try sending them to my Flckr account and using another method of putting them on this boar...

Re: Massachusetts to the 'Northwest Princedom', Stow etc.

Tried resampling to 800 pix wide, but still no go -- still sliders, but now the pix are blocky. Anyone point me to help in uploading pix?

Massachusetts to the 'Northwest Princedom', Stow etc.

Traveled from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and made only about 200 miles, from Massachusetts to Inn at Buck Hollow Farm in Fairfax. Most of the stops were at quilt shops -- tomorrow's our big day, in and around Cambridge, Jeffersonville and Jericho. The best color was around Winchendon, Massachusetts, just s...

Re: Northwest ...er, Princedom? Chasing mid-20th C art

And thank you, Andy. Your book is a gem. I only wish the photographs were higher resolution in the Kindle edition -- we would have liked to zoom in farther. It must have been something else to commute through these towns. I can't imagine the trek becoming the usual glazed-eyes-on-the-road slog of mo...

Re: Northwest ...er, Princedom? Chasing mid-20th C art

Aspen, beautifully put. You have made my month (at the very least).

And you're right about Hibbard's snow paintings. He is among the acknowledged masters.

Much appreciated,
Dave

Re: Northwest ...er, Princedom? Chasing mid-20th C art

Thanks, bm. Found your report on this area and we've added Cilley Hill Road to the things to explore. Here's hoping that color comes along fast. The NOAA weather page for Jericho tells me 0% cloud cover right now and the rest of the day -- maybe the sunlight will act as a color accelerator... but we...

Re: Early Morning Killington color

Marvelous!

It's great how diffusion and light gray help to soften and enrich the color.

Northwest ...er, Princedom? Chasing mid-20th C art

Spent a long time here (and elsewhere) researching a short trip to the shadow of Mt. Mansfield. If Vermont's Northeast is the Kingdom, is the Northwest the Princedom? Anyway, we bought Andy's book, gathered some good auto tours, rounded up a number of covered bridges and key scenes, many of which we...
