#204 - This Walk Makes Good Scents

 28" x 22" oil on stretched canvas

This is new subject matter for me and a larger size than I normally work on also. I was intrigued by the wealth of visual information in the photo reference I worked from, and by the challenge to simplify it into something interesting. It was fun to paint because I love walking in pine forests; the wonderful smells add another layer of richness to the sights and sounds.

12" x 16" oil on canvas

I went to a local brewery, Kishwaukee Brewing, and ordered a flight, It was a thing of beauty when I set them in order on the table in the sunshine.
