Ag Exempt

Ag Exempt
6 x 8 inches, oil on panel

These are the kinds of scenes I fall in love with when I'm looking at art, but that I find frustrating to paint on a 6 x 8 panel--because brushstrokes are so small and restrained--and unforgiving.  The value in each spot has to be right--there is no fudging it.  I'm not saying I did things perfectly here, but I do like this piece a lot.  I'm working on a larger version in the studio.

This is so reminiscent of Dutch landscapes . . . moody and beautiful!
