The painting to the right is of Millbrook Mountain, looking north along the Shawangunk Ridge in the Hudson Valley. It has a long way to go before I'll call it finished. It's 5X6 oil on canvas. The photo was taken by John Okner during an early morning mission to Millbrook Mountain at sunrise. John is good at capturing images at the right time.
