I thought I'd send along a photo of the painting currently on the easel. It's taken with my phone, and is blurry, but I think you'll get the idea.

As you can see, although it's a made-up place, I was being influenced by some of my earliest heroes, John F. Kensett and Sanford Gifford.

Here's a detail of it, a couple of days in.

I'd also been thinking about an old painting of mine, from the '80s.

A friend bought this one, protesting, to no avail, that it should be less expensive since it has no horizon.

Hope all are well. For those of you on Instagram, you can find me there at @donaldjurney . There are now almost two-hundred paintings there.
