Here’s what the artist had to say about this artwork:
The first place Sara ever took me to was Goat Hill Overlook in New Jersey. It was actually a bit chilly, but we had some nice hot stew and a blanket to keep us warm. Two years later and we’re getting married so I painted this piece as a wedding present for Sara. The whole painting went pretty smoothly. The color relationships were fun to play with, although the atmosphere in the distance took a bit of reworking. Overall, I think it captures the romantic mood of that day.
