Breezy Day

Last night I churned out a quick, fun canvas that was originally intended to merely be the background for a more ambitious work.

But once I got it finished, I realized that it wasn’t really suited to becoming the background for that work.  Nevertheless, I decided to keep it anyway and I named it Breezy Day.

For me, it’s a new style.

  1. What a wonderful way to spend time. Fresh air, a bit of sun, beautiful, unspoilt land and your paints and canvas! I hope you had a nice picnic to eat and perhaps good company to keep as well! Thank you for sharing!


    1. I so wish, Mona. I would love to paint outside. But I don’t yet own an easel for it. My only easel is a studio version. I want to get a portable French easel and a folding chair though. My paints are specially formulated to dray slow enough to paint outside. I would love to do that.


  2. I don’t know much about painting except for the obvious, but I really like this one. Although, to me, it seems a little more potent than a breeze. I feel like I can hear the wind and see the trees sway 🙂 Well done !


  3. I am glad you took a break! Loved this. The colours are so vivid and if I pay close attention I can hear the grass singing and the leaves rustling in the merry breeze 🙂


      1. That’s what I feared might happen with mine. I got lucky though. Also, my brother got me a nice, very suitable brush awhile back for just such things as grass.


    1. Thanks, Marysa! I did it overnight using a daylight lamp so the colors would come out true. So maybe a total of six or seven hours. It would not have taken that long except it kept evolving as I painted it. 🙂

  4. This is gorgeous! Were you thinking of Van Gogh when you were working on it? It reminds me of his love of grass and wind, and how things are always seeming to get buffeted around in it. Like that one of his with the tired couple resting against the haystack. Very impressionistic in any case, and I like the impression.


I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day.
