August Fields

18" x 24"
acrylic on canvas

It's too bad I didn't photograph the first version of this little painting. Just behind the second hayroll was a tree. It was there in the original landscape I worked from - but in the painting it just didn't feel right. I showed the painting locally and it was then that I realized the tree had to go.... Instead, the arched branches of a tree out of the frame offer better balance of line and the opportunity to carry the rusty colors aloft.
