"Blue Vista" SOLD

Oil on linen canvas, 9"x12"

Update: I have revised this painting and have uploaded the new image. I was not happy with this painting and repainted the foreground tree, the sky, horizon, and foreground flowers. It is true that knowledge precedes execution in painting but somewhere along the line it must become intuitive otherwise there is a lack of spontaneity in the work, and that is something I strive for in my paintings.

Another conceptual piece. I sure would like to be doing these on location "en plein air", but I still work for a living and that is a priority which makes doing things like this in a morning session impossible for me unless I do them in the studio. I do look forward to getting out on location though.
