Stormy Meadow - Adirondack Trip

Stormy Meadow, L. Daniel, 12 x 16


Sometimes when the sky is darkest, the ground takes on an incredibly intense hue. In this meadow, the grass sparkled a brilliant chartreuse while the distant mountains came in and out of view with the fickle mist. Occasionally some light would push through on the horizon, but only for a moment. It was just one of those rainy mountain days... cozy...

I love the simplicity in this painting, and the palette so perfectly conveys a stormy afternoon (it is monsoon season here, so I've been much of that lately!).

This painting reminds me of scenes in Nova Scotia that I will see soon. It perfectly captures that atmosphere, with dark sky, and vivid fields. So lovely.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXBarbara

Laurel,
The intense color of the ground plane when a storm is brewing is so true. Your keen observations are so well represented in this painting. Bravo!
