Hello there, I painted this same image a while back a bit smaller, this is 11X 14 on a stretched canvas. The smaller one hung in the Cincinnati art museum for a month or so. I loved the image so much I thought I would try it again. I used a palette knife for some of the foreground work to create some nice texture.
Starting to feel like fall here, nice having it cool off a bit but we sure need rain. Our group is meeting outside Friday morning to paint, our days are numbered before the cold weather arrives.
