AM Foster Covered Bridge, Cabot, Vermont

16x20 oil on board
An oil painting of a previous graphite drawing (Graphic Version)
And now entered in Champlain Valley Fair Art Show (2017). SOLD at Fair.

Bridge over Black River, Actinolite, Ontario

8x10 oil on canvas board
Painting says 'Madoc' but 'Actinolite' is the closest town, I believe.

Lamoille River, Vermont, from 'Wrong-Way Bridge'

Don't know why it's 'wrong-way'.

Peacham Hills

16x20 oil on linen
From a photo I took and had lying around in a folder called 'ProbablyNot'.
And now entered in Champlain Valley Fair Art Show (2017).
Got 'Honourable Mention' at the Fair.
Don't understand the judging - neither of the other two entries got anything (though one SOLD), and I think both are better than this one, IMHO.
