Tucked Into The Hills



12 X 16 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.

Painting at the same location for several weeks definitely makes you familiar with the subject matter that’s there. And in this spot (which is the same as in the last post and the other tree post) there are trees, trees and more trees. And, I was sick of painting trees. So, I looked up. Yes, there are still trees in this one but they aren’t the main character. Architecture is always challenging and I enjoy a good painting challenge!

This one took several sessions, two outdoors and one in the studio for finishing work. What do you think?

You did a very nice job with the sky in relationship to the composition. Love the layers of depth and of course your great brush work.

How do you find the time to create all these pieces? More great stuff.

I have great hope that the economy will turn. We'll keep the lights on for you!

Really nice painting! ...esp. the trees (caught my attention first even though they aren't your center of interest). Wonderful atmospheric perspective and feel of distance.
