Don’t you just love a hot summer day, perhaps walking a trail that takes you into the distance with no one around as far as you can see? Ah, I love it! Landscape/fields have so much to offer – interesting things just waiting to be discovered, whoever said weeds aren’t gorgeous when the sunlight hits them.
My latest is a summer landscape that’s been warmed by the sun, has a little breeze and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear sounds of birds and insects filling the air. I can’t help but recall summertime during my childhood we would go to my Aunt’s house that had a large field behind her barn – it was those hot summer days when a distinct sweet smell of earth would fill me up as we walked the horse trails. Gosh I really loved it. The scene I painted reminds me of that wonderful time, the title “Summer Trail” (oil paste, 11×14). Enjoy summer!
