5 x 7 inches, oil on board.

I was waiting for this painting to dry so that I could scan and post it. I've been trying out new painting mediums; this one keeps the paint wet longer.

I am drawn to paths. I like the arabesque this one makes into the distance. Yes, we're still in Old Bethpage Village on Long Island. I will, eventually, paint Oregon landscapes (I'm working on one now). But I don't think I'm done with this place yet. Maybe I know that when I start painting the northwest I will probably stop painting Long Island. I'd like to feel I have "finished" it. But I also know (do I ever) that nothing ever really gets finished.

I think it is interesting that you painted a path, but also chose to paint a gate. It is as if you are leaving one place behind and exploring a new one. What lies beyond that bend?
