An empty, tilled field in the early afternoon on a hot,humid summer day-
Rolling pastures, mountains and a ramshackle fence on a hot, hazy midsummer day-
Abandoned field with cedars around midafternoon on a hot, hazy day with slightly overcast skies-
An abandoned field overlooking distant mountains at midday in warm, dry weather- maybe early summer.
Mountain and rolling fields on a partly cloudy day perhaps in early summer-
My memory of the view from my bedroom’s north facing window at sunrise two days ago-
A fiery sunset evolved from two rectangular blotches of paint on a piece of scrap canvas-
another mini landscape-
These mini landscapes make me think of the backgrounds of some of Pieter Bruegel The Elder’s non creepy scenes-specifically the hazy atmosphere, patches of light beige fields disappearing in the distance and the grayish blue sky.
Some very soft atmospheric effects in this piece- it looks like maybe a bird’s eye view of one of the gaps in the Massanutten complex of mountains east of here in rainy, foggy weather- perhaps in late Winter or early March.
