"Outfield"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

Continuing on with my road trip series, fresh sights from the Lancaster & Brandywine Valley in Pennsylvania - I hope you enjoy many new works coming up - including this new piece, a quiet, peaceful homestead and farm tucked back in the fields. I squinted a lot when I drove around the farmlands - at times the glare took over and what was in the distance was barely visible. As much as I wanted a clear, blue sky all the time, those gray/green/blue/white skies allowed for the slightest of color to pop out. Especially the greens of the fields.

A very serene scene wonderfully rendered.

This may be my all time favorite paintings you've done! I'm really looking forward to seeing all your landscape paintings. The greenish sky really makes the painting have a wonderful mood to it!

I love the saturated greens in the foreground, white roof and overcast sky. A lot packed into 6x6 inches!

I get an Andrew Wyeth feeling about this piece! Love it!
