In deciding what to paint next, I rummaged through countless photographs I had taken.  I found this photo when I was still using film.   I had photographed this many years ago before the great mall came, before the widening of the canyon, before couples came and said "Let's make the house  BIGGER!" : )... So going through my photos and finding this snapshot, I decided to paint this small part of earth this "FIELD".   The two top photos are close-ups and the larger is the full painting. The painting is oil on canvas, 60X46 is $12000  (Sold)

There's a depth and serenity in this painting that takes my breath away. Thank you for this virtual preservation of lovely open space.
