Farm Gazing” seems to be an appropriate title for this recent painting. Last Sunday, I visited a farm near my home with a new group of plein air artists and I did a lot of “gazing”.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed with all the possibilities of a place in terms of subject matter? This was my experience at this location, it was so exciting and inspiring. There were so many amazing “vistas” to choose from. I took time to walk around the acreage and observe. Fortunately I had my camera in tow and snapped away. You can see some of those photos at http://www.facebook.com/renderedimpressions.
For this painting I used an 11″x 14″ canvas panel. I had some rough moments with this piece and spent quite a bit of time back at home making adjustments over this past week. At this point I feel like it’s complete enough.
