Another Blue Ridge Plein Air by Bernie Rosage Jr.

"Blue Ridge View"... Blue Ridge Plein Air #5, Fleetwood, NC
6x8" Oil on Panel, en plein aire, 11-21-2007.
This original oil painting is available for purchase at eBay via auction... click here...

This peaceful scene is set just below our mountain lodge. Two days earlier I set out to paint this scene in the late afternoon... As I got to the foot of the hill I heard two gunshots (rather close I might add) so I decided to wait. I could just see the headlines now... "Plein air painter mistaken for deer!" While painting this one I saw wild turkeys, a white tail deer, and a Pleated woodpecker. An awesome time spent communing with nature.

I like the texture, makes it feel like the wind is blowing.
