1971 oil on canvas 24 x 35 unframed 36 x 48 framed Published and exhibited "Whenever I came upon this scene, I was captivated by the dance these two trees seemed to be doing together." ~ Richard Schmid, THE LANDSCAPES Richard had a particular affinity for painting the Connecticut landscape partly because of the lack of industry in bedroom communities such as Gaylordsville, where he painted this landscape en plein air.
