No excuses...but life got in the way...Recently, I have been able to push the other thing aside and paint. This painting happened as I went out on Father's Day morning to check on the haybales across the lane, but turned - uninspired - and walked down the driveway. That's where I saw the scene that called to be painted. I loved the strong light and shadow. I grabbed a canvas and some paints and plopped them on the hood of a car as a make-shift work area. This is an 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas entitled "Summer Fields".
