morning mist

This painting is 16 x 20 inches, oil applied with palette knife. I enjoyed painting the back tree line, trying to convey mist and morning light breaking through. The front field grass is dense, and changes color according to how the light hits it. I put the path on the corner - a risky move compositionally, but it felt right. I wanted the sense of the road just there, but the center of interest is the sun's presence, about to break out.

Wow. If you keep this up, I'm going to be broke.
