Bright Prairie

A little summer.

Bright Prairie
14" x 18" - oil on canvas

This is one of a series based on a plein air painting I did
 out in the tall grass of my friend Jeanette's prairie two summers ago.
Has it been that long?  Wow!
(You can see that painting on my September 3, 2012 blog post)

From the first study I did a 24" x 36" painting.
That painting won the top award
 at the Fort Madison Art Center Member's Show in 2012.
More on that in a future post.

These paintings have been fun to do with the palette knife.
I tried to paint this one a little brighter and higher key than the others.
