Sledding at Mt. Tom
Mt. Tom is a beloved sledding place in Gardiner, Maine. It’s a long, quite steep slope that can be breathtakingly (not to mention dangerously fast!) in icy conditions. Most of us here in our section of the Kennebec Valley have happy nostalgic memories of winter afternoons on this hill. And the view of the frozen Kennebec River and woods beyond is grandly beautiful. I wanted to get a sense of the mystery and danger of the place into the painting. That’s why I painted it in late afternoon light. I think the crow feather falling from the sky expresses the sense you get at that time of day – that everything is still and quiet, but something is about to happen.
