Gorgeous Plein Air Environment, April 25, 2010

Wildflowers among the wreckage

School has been keeping me buried in work, but I did manage to escape late Sunday afternoon, driving an hour south of where I live to capture this quick scene of a panel truck abandoned in a field of wildflowers.  The sun, shadows, and temperature of the day was gorgeous beyond description, and I could have stayed for hours.  But alas, there is still schoolwork to do and I’ll be up late again.

    I am amazed at the level of detail and the emotion you are able to express in such a short painting session. Lovely!

    Thank you. Tonight (May 5) I’ve begun a larger (24″ x 18″) composition of this vehicle, presented more frontally. I’m going to do the poured technique like I did the painting “Jennifer in the Hunt” earlier this year (on the cover of my website now).
