"Evening Chores" circa 1950
These barns are part of a long past dairy farm. It's on a road which loops off Route 2 and then back again a few miles along. It's almost as though when travelling this road, one returns to a simpler time when gasoline was 19 cents a gallon and coffee was 5 cents for a cup. I once had the 1950 Chevy pick-up that's in this picture. My daughter named it Reddy Jughead.

"Winter Blue Jays"
I made the studies for this scene from sketches of the resident jays near my feeder. The red highbush cranberries turn a bright red by mid-winter and attract many birds. By late winter when the berries are more tender due to the many thawings and freezing, the birds find a colorful meal waiting to be readily eaten.
