In The Brush

In my last post I mentioned that I recently found two rather awful plein air paintings which I had previously started, but not finished. "Denouement" is now covering one and "In The Brush" is thankfully covering the other. Hopefully the foreground looks like dark, scrubby brush that you often see on the prairies- possibly a little patch of land that is not farmable (is that a word?) or a thicket in the grasslands.

A quick bit of business: I have added an email sign-up to the top right-hand corner of my blog. Basically, if you want notification that I have added a new painting to the blog, you will receive a simple email letting you know. Just follow the easy steps and voila! These emails will not be used for any other purpose than for what I have just described.

Gorgeous. It feels great to cover one you don't like with one you do doesn't it! So lovely.

Indeed it does Barbara! I'm sure you rarely have to do it, though.
