Mt. Monadnock

 
Mt. Monadnock Watercolor 5x7 (matted to 8x10)
 
I do love the mountains!  This was done from a photo I took at Jaffrey airport in New Hampshire.  The runway is rough and slightly uphill but it is next door to a wonderful ice cream stand.
 
Monadnock means a mountain alone, not part of a range.  This one sits half way between New Hampshire's White Mountains and the Berkshires of Massachusetts.  I hiked it many years ago.
 
My favorite is oils and pastels but I switched to watercolors for this because it was more portable and I spent the day on the move.
