The Painter

Yesterday, in the light snow, I drove out to Huntington to have lunch with two of my good friends that I worked with.  As I drove through Cold Spring Harbor, I saw this scene of an artist making a painting.  What struck me was that the only color in the scene was the painting!  Since it was snowing lightly, the sky was gray, the water was gray, and the ground was colorless and the artist was dressed in black!  Wow, what more could a photographer ask for!  I spoke to the woman, to tell her how much I enjoyed seeing her painting in the snow, and she said, haltingly, that she did not speak English.  So I don't know any more about her.  Please click on the image to see it in greater detail.

Great photo, but funny how she has so much color in her photo. Betsey and I took a road trip in September to view an estate and the grounds. Many artists were painting an where I saw blue sky and green trees, some were painting orange, purple and vibrant colors. Kudos to this woman painting in the snow.

Love the contrast! How striking - it's such a gloomy day, and yet she sees in pastels! It's too bad that she didn't speak much English. You might have found her to be quite an upbeat person. I'd like to think that, anyway.

Lovely to see all the color in the woman's picture as opposed to the dull greys and browns in the photo. betsey
