These fields seem to go on forever. When I travel down this road, the fields remain beautiful no matter what season making such a peaceful drive.

Twenty minutes with oil all AR3.

Paul, Thank you very much. I am going to try to work more on perspective. I appreciate that so much.

Katie, Thanks, I made this one with a cup of tea this morning and it was fun to make.

Ken, Many thanks!

Valerie, Thank you! This is one of the last large areas of land near my home.

Thanks so much Katie for commenting and viewing-so happy that you can pop in and out throughout the day! Gives me a chuckle thinking about Katie being so sneaky!:D

Sandra, I love this.
When you leave the highway to come to my town, you drive 11 miles on a two lane road, thru all farm country. Most of it is with a large wooded bluff on one side, and farm fields as far as you can see on the other.
We have lived here going on 11 years, and that drive still knocks me out every time.

Mike, I am so happy that you have such a scenic view too. We have had industry moving in and industrial sewerage lines put in now, and rumors of this families land being taken away, we the neighbors have tried to help them and keep a close watch. We live near the oldest state park in the US-Indian Springs and High Falls where the Creek Nation lived. It is so beautiful rich with natural resources. I pray that it will stay this peaceful place.

Peter, I am overjoyed that you liked my painting! Thank you!

Sandra, the marks you made on this painting are like strokes on a snare drum -- their repetition and purpose roll up to an exciting drum solo.

Love it, it makes me think a big storm is moving in, the grasses are waving, the sky is darkening and the hay is waiting for a drink :D

Something about the abstract / loose style in this one that I just love to death.

Included it in my desktop slideshow :)
