We are lucky to have fields in a semi-wild state just across the lane from our home. The ownwer mows and bales twice a year and in between, it is a wild meadow of chicory, clover, Queen Anne's Lace, and goldenrod. This year's butterfly population was particularly noticeable. I am always inspired by the changing colors light and shadows. I don't think I will need to go anywhere else to paint. As I have just started plein air painting, this piece, from August, is the first I have to post. I finished it in the studio with some collaged found papers and hand-painted tissue to enhance the texture and add interest.
