"Grey Day" was painted during a plein air event in Evinston, FL. a few years ago. Wild flowers were in bloom and the day was dark and overcast. I had just finished painting the Wood and Swink Post Office when this scene caught my eye.
The last painting in the challenge, "Summer Solitude", is a recent one, again inspired by work on Bud Adams Cattle Ranch. (I told you I have spent a lot of time painting on the ranch.)
This was a gorgeous day, late in the afternoon when the sun casts a warm glow causing the clouds to brighten and the tall grasses to turn brilliant oranges, golden yellows and warm reds.
Now for my challenge: Susan Cassens, Kathleen Chenet, Sean Dowie, Michael Enns,
and Elizabeth Ferber. All are very talented artists and friends. I know you will enjoy seeing their work.
