Green Valley

Green Valley
Day 2 of 30
plein air Oil  8" x 10"
$195.00 + $10. s/h

I love how green Colorado is this summer.  I can't remember when I've mixed so many different greens!  This plein air piece was painted about an hour west of Colorado Springs up into the mountains.

I love how paths bring your eye into a painting;  I paint a lot of paths.  This fence seems to do the same thing.  It draws your eye into the piece and then, I hope, makes you wonder what's beyond the fence and under the trees, what's on the far side of the fence that we can't see, why is there a fence that doesn't seem to do much?

How great is that when you can paint right from the car!  That is truly not always the case!!

Once again I'm participation in Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.  As in the past, I'll post as often as I can.  I'll be in the mountains part of the month and don't always have access to internet.  Also, I don't paint that many small paintings, so I'll also be posting steps of larger works.  Anyway, enjoy the challenge with me and all of the other almost 800 artists participating!!

Thank you Bill. We've had so much rain in Colorado this year that it's unbelievably green!
