Petite Peinture: Spring on the Farm

"Spring on the Farm"

4" x 4" x 1-3/8" Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

Last Saturday while driving to Stevens Point for my daughter's state solo & ensemble music competition, I noticed that some of the farm fields were blooming with something yellow. While I am not sure if they were weeds or not, to my eye they were beautiful spots of color. I used one of my favorite landscape compositions, the high horizon line, and kept the foreground dark to play up the yellow field and farm buildings.

What I love about the tiny "pocket paintings" is that they read SO BIG! Stong composition, nice color, and great brushstrokes.

Thanks Val! They are so fun to paint, too!
