A Wild One

For me, this is a HUGE oil painting.  It's something like 30x36.  I painted it one morning on the road to the old studio, when I was passing a field just as the sun was about to rise over the trees at the back of this yellow field of grass.  Everything was on fire, and as soon as I got to the studio I set to work.  It's not quite finished, but I thought you'd like to see something a little different for me.

Kelley, this is very cool ... did I understand you right that this is from memory?

I especially like the subtle glow in the sky ... nice!

3 weeks later I answer you Karen... ! Sorry! Yes, this was initially scrubbed in right when I got to the studio after seeing it, but I had no photo or anything to go by, just my memory (been reading too much Gaugin!)

I'm impressed that you are up before the sun. Nice glow to this.
