Farmer's Field - Adirondack Trip (last)

Farmer's Field, L. Daniel, 6 x 12, SOLD


This is my final painting from the Adirondack Invitational trip with Plein Air Magazine. And what a fabulous trip it was! Beautiful country, wonderful people, a great adventure! This row of trees on the horizon called my name as I was scouting out some country side roads late one afternoon. I found a tree that protected me from both sun and rain while I was painting... it was that kind of day. 


Thank you for your many notes of encouragement about these paintings, I really appreciate being able to share the experience with friends. AND, right now I am actually painting a giant version of this scene in my studio (3' x 5')... so stay tuned... I will post about it later, when it is finished, dry and photographable. Extending the fun... :)

A wonderful series of paintings. If I had to pick a favourite it would be Stormy Meadow. I can walk into that one.
Congratulations.

It's so nice to see a really simple scene come alive in the hands of a fine painter. Make me wish I had been there.

I have also loved seeing your paintings from this trip. It looks like it was not only fun but a successful trip for you! Can't wait to see the larger version of this little jewel!

Wow, 3'x5' is crazy big and I bet a ton of fun. I wonder how much white you'll use, lol. Can't wait to check it out.

This is soooo beautiful - some lucky person got it! I love that you are sharing your evolution to 'big' time, too. I have a few frighteningly large canvases in my studio, too.
