5 x 7" oil
Today's small painting is one from the recently completed series of daily paintings on gessoed mat board. I repurposed my stash of mat board for watercolors after I stopped doing shows of framed art. I found these 5 x 7" archivally gessoed boards so versatile for studies and en plein air work. They are real art gems when framed. Standard size frames are so cost efficient, too. And no glass needed as I had to use with my watercolors!
"Harvest Fields", a colorful original rural landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of fields of grain and recently plowed soil after harvest on a bright summer day. Time for the combines to thresh the oats!
Dark evergreen trees on the hillsides contrast with the light colors of the grain. Distant mountains add a touch of cool color to the scene.
This oil painting on archivally prepared mat board is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame.
