Clearly this was the last of the Sunflower Field Paintings... as the sun is going down, and I KNOW I wasn't there at dawn (although it is on my list for this summer) It was inspiring to get out and paint often en plain-air often last summer! This sunflower field was a Great find! Unfortunately it is over an hour from where I live, so maybe not getting back this year.
We painted at this site all day. I wanted more of a composition that told the story of the quiet road on this one. The spot WAS quiet, lovely people stopped by, it was all good! Three paintings were the result.
so glad to have located all three from that day!
