As you can see, I find this time of year exceedingly stimulating. This 11″x14″ plein air oil painting was done locally at New Pond Farm (which I showed you in photos yesterday in this post).
The first photo below shows the close company I was keeping as I painted! The cows seemed both very curious and a little protective of me. They sought me out and huddled only about three feet from me as I painted. Below that photo you will find see some close up details as well.
I love being surrounded by the trees right now, each one a kaleidoscope of color, done by the hand of the master pointillist!
