Beyond Dixie

Beyond Dixie. Oil on Hand Primed Linen. 30" x 36".

This is nearly finished. It's a painting I've been working on for a couple of months now in the studio. While I had confidence in the overall composition of the painting, I've strugged with details: leaves, field.

I'd welcome ideas on what's working and what's not. I've looked at it for awhile now and it's getting harder to see it with fresh eyes.

This is located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, past what was once the town of Dixie. Today there's just a small general store where you can get a cold drink on a hot day of painting.


I like it.

I would take the center tree trunk and move it closer to one or the other outside tree trunks. My humble thoughts.

You are totally right. I can't believe I didn't see that! Originally there were 4 trees and I'll think about adding a 4th or moving one. For now, I've set it aside while I try to get another 10 or so paintings finished!
