Italian Lake in the city of Harrisburg, PA is a popular painting spot. "September Sun on Italian Lake" depicts very early aspects of  Autumn, while "Italian Lake Greenery" was painted at the height of Summer. While it's not Italy, why not enjoy something that is at least reminiscent?

Review of Wildwood Views

"Wildwood Longview"
24x48", oil on masonite

"Wildwood Large Pond"
24x48", oil on Masonite

"Marsh & Mountains"

Wildwood, just beyond Harrisburg Area Community College, provides views full of color and wildlife.  Who would guess this gem of nature is so close to the city? The two 24x48" paintings were inspired from smaller plein air paintings. The third painting was done on location.
