Every time I say someting I'm working on is big, Timna snickers at me, because my stuff is always, always small compared to her sizes. This one is 12×24" showing a fairly realistic view of the Connecticut River Valley from Hatfield to the Holyoke Range. North is to the left, which can confuse those who live for maps. It could probably hang either way; north up or east up, depending on the comfort levels of the individual who ends up owning it.
Below are two details from the above, one of the Hadley penninsula, some of the msot amazing farmland in the state, and one of the Northampton Meadows, a very similar texture of farmland but used quite differently.
