thanks Russell the scene is a mile or two from here.....near the view shown in the painting is the Howell Living History farm, in West Amwell, NJ. One a year a good fiddle contest is held there. The farm is operated by a historical society, works as if the era was sometime in the 1800's, so people can visit and see Life Before Electricity. there's plenty of rabbits and possums around here....also foxes, coyote, huge deer population, a few large cats (a mountain lion roams the woods behind my sister's house--not far from this scene) and black bear....the intersection seen in the painting sits on a plateau atop the end of Sourland Mountain, shortly before it slopes down to meet the Delaware River.
