I am very excited about this new landscape painting from this beautiful summer day. The Cemetery is right on the Charles River and very beautiful. It is a very peaceful place to work — and attracts quite a bit of traffic as walkers from nearby offices take their lunch break. I hope to return to complete more paintings there as the year progresses.

In this painting, as in many of my landscapes, I applied paint entirely with a palette knife, scraping and drawing into the thick layers of paint as the image progressed. I use very little medium when I paint quickly and with a palette knife — I love the thickness and consistency of the raw paint.
