At The Hill Top

#26- At The Hill Top

(30 paintings in 30 days - Project II)

I wanted to keep this one light, loose and sort of impressionistic. I loved the little rock nestled into the grasses with the Wolf Willow growing behind it. I think little Easter eggs would be right at home hidden in this scene.

Four more left 'til #30!

Hi Monika,

It is quite gratifying to make a painting a day, but it is not something I can keep up. Well, I guess I could... but maybe don't want to... at least not indefinitely.

Thanks... I will show the poster this week.
