Once again, in July I had the great fortune of being invited to spend 2 weeks at an informal artists residency in Woodstock, NY. I arrived completely spent from having put up yet another show at Purume Gallery where I’ve been curating a variety of art exhibits, putting up and taking down a 2-person show at St Francis College with my wonderful painter friend Mary K. Connelly, painting and delivering 6 new paintings for the annual Windham Fine Arts plein air exhibit (see post below), working on my apartment building’s garden, and the rest of my life! After a couple of days in recovery, I went out and painted a few studies, oil on paper:

It was so much fun working alongside the stream, that I ended up turning this study into an 18″x24″ painting:

This lead to inspiration for another finished painting done from nearby:

These were fine mornings – quiet, except for the burbling of the stream behind me, the sun filtered by all the trees that managed to take root in the rocky stream bank, and a nice breeze keeping everything cool.  Until around 11:30 when all the families or camp groups descended to swim in the large swimming hole nearby.

To see more sketches from this escape, visit my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ellayangstudio (you don’t have to be a FB member to view the page). I’ll add more here, too…. eventually!
