"Fox Field" © revised

I promised artists to post this painting again after fixing the echoed shape in the sky that the original painting demonstrated. Look back a day or two to the first version of this piece. The smaller tree had a perfect halo of sky, then the larger tree had a perfect batch of leaves making an arch, following the shapes. I didn't see this until posting, which happens a lot. One of the many advantages of blogging. It would be fair to say I tweak 90% of the paintings after posting to this blog. It's another source of critique.

I thought I could tell what you were talking about when you mentioned it in the last post and now I see I was right. This is much better.

This and the last post are very helpful to those of us who follow in your footsteps (or want to.)

Do you think the rain will let up enough next week to get out and paint???

Hi Laura, I think your work is beautiful and sensitive. Have you been tagged yet? I just tagged you. Come over and see what the rules are. Thanks!

HI Marian, It looks like late next week we'll see some sun. I am giving a lecture on Sunday at the Valencia Library but Saturday morning is a SCAA paint out which you are welcome to attend. It's a new spot for us, Tesesa De Oro. Not sure of the spelling. It should be on the website. I'll put it on the Beauty Of California Painters Facebook. Maybe a bunch will come!
