Wild at Heart.

August Afternoon   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper  5 x 7 inches   SOLD

3pm in a wild garden.  The last of the Rosebay Willowherb.

Studio Musings...

The scene looks calm and serene.   In reality...there is a battle going on.
Painting is often a battle for me to put down what I really want to see.

Shall I put the trees in?  Shall I leave them out?  
They went in and out many times before I finally scraped them off.

I remember reading somewhere that a painting can sometimes be better
 if half of it is removed leaving the remaining parts room to breathe.

I think it is true in this piece.  Less cluttered.
