Corner Of Nason

"Corner Of Nason"
11x14 oil on linen 
What a beautiful fall day!  I just got in from painting one of my favorite places in Washington County, close to Marine of the St Croix.  I spent some time painting this great little road last year about this time.  I'm in love with the color of the bean fields right now, so warm!  Usually farmers switch from corn to beans from year to year.  Personally I'd rather paint the bean fields than corn so this was good!  Painting outside was a refreshing break from being in the studio this past week, I really needed to get out and paint directly from Nature.  I'm now renewed for teaching this week in the studio again.  
I do have to say, I'm not thrilled with the photos I've been taking of my paintings lately.  They look a bit harsh in the photos compared to the originals.  Eventually I'll take the time to figure out this problem but for now, you get the idea!

Got the idea! :) It's a sweet painting Kami. The road sweeps me right back into the distance beautifully. I'm sitting here typing with a real blaster of a wind in force outside right now. My bet is that it's knocking down the leaves that had changed and we're going to be into some bare branches in the treelines. Good thing you painted yesterday and grabbed some of that warm glow while it was here. Good post.

thanks Marc! It really was a great day. Funny since I was very uninspired to go out and paint after being in the studio so much the past week but knew I needed it. Once I got set up and started I was right where I was supposed to be. Amazing day really. :) Looks like you guys had a productive day too. I think it was a lot sunnier where I was though. I had sun almost all day and was really beautiful and warm. :)
