"EARTH"

For over a year or two I have gone into this painting and added a little here and a little there, tweaking this and that.  This time I got into the furrows and added far more color and texture.  I added the trunk on the tree at the far end of the plowed field and brought out the leaves, I think I'm finished now.  I had to remake the stretcher bars so they will come apart so that I  can roll the canvas to fit into my van and re-stretch it at this summer's show in Laguna Beach, "THE FESTIVAL OF ARTS".  This painting is a 60x48 inch on custom prepared canvas. For more about its location on how I came to it you can read up on it by going to "MY CANVASES"

This is a beauty.

Love this! Perspective, light, massed trees, hazy sky, plowed + fallow fields - feels like a typical (visually rich) Sacramento valley scene.

Susan, thank you, Thank you. I like that you can see what I wanted to say in this as there is a lot in a painting of this size.

Exquisite! The depth, the rich earth, the harvested field, distant trees...fabulous!

Gosh! this was a real challenge to make work and feel like all that I wanted to feel. I can't wait to present at the opening of next years show.
Thanks for stopping to comment Jeanne.
