As is often the case, if I don't sell a painting right away I get to look at it to long and often repaint it. This is one of those I thought was close but just not quite right. I repainted most of the scene and added the fence. I believe the balance of the large trees is much better, the distant trees are much better and the overall color is much better too. I think I will leave it alone now.
This was painted entirely in one session on Easter Sunday. I started this piece very loose and kept most of it that way through the finish.
