"I go to Nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more."
- John Burroughs, American nauturalist.

I love John Burroughs. I even love the way he looked when he was an old man. His boyhood home sits on Burroughs Memorial Rd in Roxbury. It's needing restoration and Woodchuck Lodge, Inc, a non-profit group is doing just that. But they need help. There's so much to do!
I finished this house portrait a few months ago and it is going to be shown at the Catskill Watershed Corp. office in Margaretville. It's part of a group show. The group's members are the ladies I paint with every Monday morning. We're hoping to get this show hung up this Thursday, weather permitting. Here's a link to their site for a lot of good information. http://woodchucklodge.org/
After the show is over, this painting will be offered for sale by Woodchuck Lodge Inc. for a fundraising event. Diane Galusha would be the person to contact through their website.
