Getting Back to the Land

While in the middle of painting the flower series (see March/April posts), I felt compelled to start painting landscapes again.  I haven’t for almost a year now, and I’m feeling the need to get back to the land. (My, I’m beginning to sound like Willa Cather.)

As I paint more, I begin to realize more about my painting process: what works, what doesn’t, etc.  I’m learning that as I start a series, it takes me a few to warm up so to speak, get to know the subjects and how I want to approach them.

    Very nice! Successful play of light and dark, and hard edges and soft places.

    An inviting view of the trail, makes me want to go hiking today.

    Thanks all!
    I’ve been feeling the need to hike lately; hopefully we get a reprieve from the rain to got out for a bit.
