Safran sometimes produced oil sketches extemporare -- on the spot, without forethought -- a practice that frees an artist's stroke and sharpens the color sense and eye. He did a series of landscapes during the late 1950s at Lake George and at Rock Tavern, where he and his wife would go to escape the city in the summer.
