Golden Pastures

Yesterday, Kate McGloughlin, from the Woodstock School of Art, sent emails around asking for artwork for the Ronald McDonald house in Albany. They need quite a number of landscapes and they asked for pastoral scenes and other traditional subjects.  I'm hoping they will like this Hudson River School style painting I did recently. 
It's loosely a scene from across the river looking back at the Catskills.  Please don't go looking for the exact location! Not unless you want to poke around inside my head, LOL!

I dearly love the Ronald McDonald house!  Eight years ago, my tiny granddaughter spent the first four months of her life in the neonatal intensive care unit at Albany Med.  The Ronald McDonald house is nearby and they also have a center right at the hospital.  My son and daughter in law are fortunate enough to live in the Capital district, so they didn't need to stay at Ronald's house.  However, we all reaped the benefits of the center at the hospital. They provided sofas and places to relax, playthings for kids and spots to use your computer. There was a kitchen and often times pizza and other food was either donated or brought in to share among the families. I can't say enough good things about the Ronald McDonald House.
