Fall Farm

oil on panel 9" x 12"
This is a painting from a farm in New York state that I have been visiting for a long time. I was struck by the view walking back from the fields towards the house and barn, where the light caught the house and barn on the side, and how they were compressed by the grass and trees into a small band of intense color and focus. It was painted outside over Thanksgiving weekend, and I had to stop when clouds came in, destroying the light and robbing me of enough warmth to continue.
