Misty Field

(click on picture to purchase)

Glowing, shimmering grasses reflect first light
on a walk through the fields near my home. I
am always struck by how similar this land -
scape is to the landscape of Provence, in
southern France, where I paint and teach in
the Spring each year. We even have vineyards
around here, the grapes from which are turned
into wine - those paintings sometimes get confused
with my paintings of vineyards in France when I
try to catalogue them later. The climate isn't too
dissimilar either, which probably accounts for
my attraction to the place. On second thought,
maybe this painting is from Provence....! Oh well.
