Painting on location with fellow painters is just about the most fun thing you can do, I think. I painted this in my studio recently from a photo I took on one of those magical outings last spring. We were on top of the highest hill in Hull on a spectacular sunny, warm spring day. Within minutes, everyone was in their groove and it was slice of heaven. The model was my good pal Franny Andahazy. I can't wait to get out there! Everything is green again! New England has never looked more beautiful than it does right now!

I took the background in this a little further than I usually do in my figure paintings. This one seemed to need it, in order to speak more about the place and time.
