I started this painting today, recreating an old farmstead I photographed last September in Penn Yan, New York. I loved filling in the bright sky, but especially starting the green grass brimming with sunshine. And I love all the shadows, too. It will be fun to do this one, I think. And it simply felt good to begin a new painting, something fresh for the coming spring. It’s a small work, only 8 x 10, and should be completed in a few sessions.
