Click here to bid on this painting
I just returned from a week in Nashville Tenn. Got to meet and paint with Anne Blair Brown, an artist I admire, in a three day workshop setting. Just what I needed to get my art juices flowing again.. Anne is very likable and fun to be with. Got to be around a lot of other artists, who were also nice people. The area is replete with beautiful scenery and varied painting subjects, and I can't wait to go back again for a week or two, possibly in the fall. The little sketch above is one I did of a field almost covered with small yellow flowers. I did about six paintings, with decent results, but the last, a larger work from inside a barn looking out into the bright sunlight would have been the best. Unfortunately when I pulled it from my wet canvas carrier later, it slipped, scraped down across another painting, and was badly damaged. Had so much fun that week, it hardly upset me.
