Before leaving for the library yesterday, I got out for a little painting time. This vista wasn't my original intention, but the scene 180 degrees from it vexed me in a way that wasn't making for happiness, so I turned around, wiped the panel "clean," and got to it with the green.
Riverdale is situated in a valley and in every direction there is always a mountain backdrop.
A sunny day on the farm after a week of dark, rainy days, and the cows are looking for company. It's almost warm enough to consider some plein air painting. Of cows? Perhaps--the herd (most of the herd) is down on the island now, and a pastoral scene with distant herd might be just the thing.
