Spring Green - Day #23

The light was coming through the clouds 
and it hit the neighbor's field just perfectly.

Spring Green
5" x 7" oil on panel

I'm glad I stopped and took the reference photo for this painting, one never knows what will be planted in that field next year. 

I tried to keep this subject very soft and diffused to reflect the warm, hazy, cloudy atmosphere of the spring day.

I didn't push the really bright intense green that you see
 in an Iowa spring.  It just isn't quite believable in paint.
Those of you from the midwest know what I mean.

Maybe next time....
