Late Afternoon

Late Afternoon, 5 x 7 in.
donation to Arthouse 5 x 7 Art Splurge

Oh, for some rain! It seems as if every other year we have too much, and every other, too little. This field should be ripe with wildflowers and green, but the majority is still brown. We're hoping for some rain this weekend, just in time for Easter and all of it's outdoor activities. But I'm not going to complain. :)

It's so good to be back at the canvas again after a couple of weeks gathering my thoughts and energy post-show. It's interesting what a little time away does, good and bad. I feel a bit rusty, but coming back after a break seems to set me on a new and often more focused course each time.

Beautiful simple and yet complex painting- love the sweep of a palette knife there? Looks wonderful.

Beautiful values in the ground. We, too, need some rain! There was a 5 acre fire in the park right next to our house! My husband was interviewed and on TV!

This painting is so appealing to me. I love how the composition just leads the eye through - and the texture is just perfect. I love the brushwork on the right tree.
