5 x 7" oil painting
This rural landscape oil painting reminds me of the many vineyards among the hills and mountains of Oregon in the spring. I painted this 5 x 7 inch small painting in an impressionistic style somewhat like my quick glances driving down Interstate 5 to the southern part of the state. As a child I have fond memories of the vineyard on my family's acreage in California.
Small daily paintings like this one demand a simplicity in composition, colors, and brush strokes. I find them very helpful to balance a tendency toward sharp focus realism. The challenge is to say what you have to say as quickly as possible which is the essence of en plein air painting.
Enjoy the warm sunshine and peacefulness of the spacious vista of this small painting. Start to celebrate your originality with a one of a kind small painting which is not a print.
