welcome to the Monadnock region

Well, we've made it to Keene. And this is our mountain, standing watch over this beautiful little city. I was commissioned to paint Mt Monadnock last December before we knew we were moving here. (my husband's career brought us to Keene) I enjoyed the subject so much that I painted two and now I expect, many more!

I've always loved this mountain and climbed it as a child growing up in Milford, NH. I'm looking forward to taking my own 2 little charges for many hikes in this beautiful region.
