The autumn of 2016 was especially brilliant. It set the Hayes field and surrounding mountains ablaze like a torch. In every direction there was inspiration to paint. I finally settled into a view that has been familiar to me since childhood: a place from the Iron Mountain trail where one can pause and gaze over the breadth of open field, to the generations-old house tucked into the landscape, and the rugged mountain ranges beyond. That lofty mountainside is a special place to be. I give thanks for the generous sharing and protection of this land, which will continue to be enjoyed long after I am gone.
