Spring Comes to the Valley. 22" x 30". In progress.
Last week I took 2 paintings to Loomis Hall Gallery in Blaine for their May show. Barbara, who runs the gallery, had asked for paintings of spring and abundance. Looking around at my paintings I realized that I'm not really about spring and abundance. I thought my recent painting, Walla Walla Fields, spoke to me of abundant promises and spring. My husband thought that was hilarious since, as you can see here, it's bare fields.
I'm from eastern Washington: spring means bare fields. Yes, I do love stark landscapes.
This one (which again, is all about spring, don't you agree?) has the first glaze over the underpainting, and the first layer of sky. Go spring!
