The relatively short commute that I now have to my new studio is a true delight. Berkshire Valley Road runs for miles through a reservation of protected land. No homes. No shopping centers. Just an expanse of huge trees, monstrous boulders, hills, valleys, rivers, lakes and an abundance of wildlife. Every once in a while I just pull off to the side of the road and admire the scenery, but there are other times when I just have to paint the beauty of what I see!
