Posted Field at Sunset (oil on canvas, 2009)

(Private Collection)
I finished this a couple of weeks ago, but I have had a great deal of difficulty photographing it, I think because the foreground is so dark and sky much lighter. I did many drawings of this view, which is off of the Carmicheal Road near my house, over the past couple of months and this composition was based on elements from several of them and then, as is usually the case, things changed once I started working on the painting. It wasn't intentional, but now that it is done, it reminds me a bit of the work of George Inness, whom I admire not only for his work, but for his philosophies about art.
