Mount Toby is the highest summit of a sprawling collection of wooded hills in Western Massachusetts. Part of the Metacomet Ridge, it is notable for its biodiversity, attractive woodlands, caves, waterfalls, and glacial kettle ponds (Cranberry Pond). Used by the University of Massachusetts as a study area, trails are open to the public. Since the advent of Covid 19, it is seeing increased use by folks wanting to hike and enjoy the outdoors.
In this series of 36″ x 36″ oil paintings I capture my perspectives and passions about the mountain I love to walk.
