It navigates it’s way through small towns, mountains, and lakes in the Adirondacks. The Adirondacks boast the largest acreage of all the national parks in the U.S. My hometown is situated at the very top of the Blue Line, the term for the boundary of the park; sometimes referred to as the Lake City. Lake Champlain and the green mountains of the ADK’s are where I grew up.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1497478274082{background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_column_text]These four large scale pieces depict the mountain ranges, hundreds of lakes, and small towns of upstate New York while following the path of the Amtrak train. Created to fill the walls of a pediatrician’s office, each scene was asked to include the owner’s Border Collie, Pepper, on her adventure visiting the sites. From Mount Marcy, the largest mountain in the park, to Olympic ski mountain Whiteface and the surrounding town of Lake Placid, Pepper’s hitching a ride on the way. The series ends at the D&H train station in Plattsburgh, ready to start the journey all over again.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1497478282442{background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_column_text]The dimensions of the pieces vary slightly, but all of which scale over six feet in length. It was important to capture the feeling of the area using the colors and tiny details you’d find here. Personally I find the best time of year to be in the region is summer surrounded by sun, thus the secondary palette. Hiking and swimming my way through the ADK’s growing up, this was a special project to work on. The last piece ends in my hometown with the train heading north until it’s quick return.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1497481903547{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”5510″][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1497481909563{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”5512″][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1497481916067{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”5513″][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1497481925931{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”5511″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1497481931370{background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1497482245191{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”5374″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1497478338185{background-color: #002b24 !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
