This little watercolor painting was accepted into the "Small Works" juried show at the Art League Gallery.
About an hour's drive west there's a place where the Appalachian Trail crosses Rt. 7, near the town of Bluemont. It descends down the side of one mountain, crosses the highway, and climbs back up the next mountain on it's way to Harper's Ferry. There's an old lodge nearby that's a trail center called Bear's Den Lodge. Sometimes I go there for a bit of Nature time. I was on the trail very early one morning, it was still a bit foggy.
The painting is not very big, only a bit larger than 4" X 6". It was painted with a teeny tiny little set of watercolors, and a brush that stores water in it's handle, (self-watering?).
