Peter's Farm

Didn't have a chance to paint during my plein air class this Tuesday, so I went back the next day to paint at Judy Chaves house.  Judy lives next to this wonderful farm with barns and outbuildings which are so fun to paint. Afternoon light is so special, though it was getting cold as we finished up at 7pm.
This one is 12x12 and going to Mystic Arts Center for their annual fundraiser.


  1. Quite beautiful!
    I envy your sense of simplifying (do you say that in English? Everything is there but without all the details )

  2. Thank you Martine. For me, it's all about simplifying the scene. There is so much information whenever we sit down to paint, how to sort it all out is the challenge. Edit, edit, edit!

  3. Love the shapes and colors but it is how you captured the light which makes this just glow. beautiful!

  4. Thank you so much Julie! It took a bit to get the sky warm enough. I'm so glad you think it worked!
