Hazy Day 14"x18" $425.00
Have been feeling the need to do some larger pieces lately. Time to use what I have learned from the small pieces on a larger scale. I am happy with this piece in that it is as good as I can do right now--always wanting to improve and be looser and more dynamic. The focal point (the farm buildings) is actually the easiest part because I am pretty sure of the structure and the details. Handling the field and trees is much harder. Here you need much repetition but with variety. You want them to be subordinate but still interesting. The cows are transportation from the fence to the buildings. They need to draw your eye but not steal the show! I think the frame is just right on this one.
