Curator's Note: I love, love the purple and pink quality of the shadows in this piece, as if teasing our perception of black/gray shadows.
I painted a study for this piece on the train from Lyon to London after a day of touring the Beaujolais region in France. I completed the final painting the second I arrived home so that I wouldn't forget the colors. When I sketched the scene, it was late afternoon, which made the fields glow bright yellow. This piece is oil on canvas board, so framing is optional.
The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
