Here are some pages from my Green Wind painting journal. I started this painting last May, and finished it in late August. That's longer than a painting usually takes, but there was so much going on in my life over the summer, including my daughter's wedding! But persistence is my middle name, and I forced myself to get back to work after the wedding.
Also, there were about four other paintings, plus quite a few plein air painting outings over the summer, that took my focus off this painting. Nice summer weather, combined with the insistence of my painting partner husband, often makes me want to just chuck working in the studio!
Now fall has returned and I am spending much more time inside. Back to the studio!
Check out the finished painting! Let me know if my fields, mountains and sky resemble Van Gogh's in his painting Mountainous Landscape - View from St. Paul's Hospital, the original inspiration for this painting.
