Blue Ridge Series comes to an end... until next time!

Here's the last in my Blue Ridge Plein Air series... until next trip... ;)

"The Ridge"... Blue Ridge Plein Air #6... Fleetwood, NC
6x8" Oil on Panel, en plein aire, 11-22, 2007 (Thanksgiving Day).
Purchased by a patron in Germany who misses the Blue Ridge Mountains...

I woke early Thanksgiving morning and decided to get at least one more plein air painting in before my family arrived later that morning. This scene is set on Fleetwood Mountain near our lodge on The Ridge. We walk this road everyday for exercise and I wanted to capture it before it is scattered with mountain homes. I got to met several people as they were enjoying their daily walks as well. Thanksgiving Day brought my family, and the COLD weather! It was 60 degrees when I painted this one... later that evening it was snowing!

Thanks for looking...
Merry Christmas everyone!
