Spring Mist in Newbury, 5 x 7"

Dear Visitors, I want to thank you for your interest and for sharing the artistic journey! Your comments mean so much to me and I appreciate all that I learn from the painters whose blogs I follow. Sometimes it's a challenge to keep up with the blogging when other things in Life demand attention, as we all know. I have great respect for those who keep it all going regardless. I have several small paintings that are slowly drying and I'll post them soon. (I haven't been totally slacking!) Meantime, I'm doing the Life Juggle!

Many artists take small plein air paintings and create larger ones in the studio. I did the reverse with this one. I painted a smaller painting from my plein air study so I could easily experiment with several aspects...colors, composition, and—how to paint a tree! : )

See you soon!

I really like the sense of distance in this painting, Pam, and especially like the reflections in the road.

Molto bello, Pamela. Nonostante il fatto che hai usato una superfice cosi piccola, hai trovato il modo di rappresentare cosí bene l'umiditá nell'aria, il bagnato sulla strada, e la luce del giorno offuscata dalle nuvole. Mi piace molto.
