Thanksgiving Weekend



The weekend after Thanksgiving was so beautiful! I got out to paint twice. On Sat. I went back to the hayfield where Joanne and I had painted a few weeks ago but painted it from a different location. Now that the leaves are gone, I could see the haybales through the trees and I think I finally got a painting of these bales that satisfys me. The next day I did a small backyard painting--actually the view is in my neighbors yard but I was set up on my side of the line. OK--looks like I have the second one first. Why are computers such a challenge?!!!

Looks like you had a good time with both of these paintings. I love the 'Atmosphere'. It is very convincing and I feel like I am really breathing in these two scenes. Lovely work.

Thanks--I did have a good time! I love painting the winter colors--such a relief to not have the "great wall of green" to deal with.

Hi Phyllis, These are lovely. The colors are so pretty and I like the hay bales throught the trees! Can't wait to see them in person!
