Finding My Way
Oil on Panel
8" x 8"
on masonite, mounted to cradled wood panel
It had been awhile since I had painted en plein air, particularly in oil. I've been spending much of my time recently painting in watercolor, but felt compelled to take an oil workshop with a well-known plein air painter. This was our first painting of the day, a view looked on from a farmer's backyard in Triverton, RI. I see the meandering body of water wending it's way through the picture plane, much like my own path creating the painting. It is very much about finding a way through the creation of a work. Allow the cool water soothe you as you contemplate your own path through, amongst the chartreuse fields and cool green trees.
Wired and ready for a contemporary presentation, wood edges finished with furniture wax paste. Float framing is available.
