On June 12th, Sandra, Cathy and I met to paint at a nearby park which is the location of the annual Battle of Tunnel Hill, a Civil War reenactment. It was still early, but we knew we must capture the light and shadow before it got too hot. I did 2 more paintings that day and will post them soon. I had done another painting at this same site on April 30th (posted on May 5th) and the difference in the foliage is amazing. If I painted this same scene every day of the year, I wouldn't be tired of it.

Nice composition BJ!

Thanks, Lori. This location is just beautiful - a long meandering tree line, rolling meadows, blacksmith shop, corn crib, pre-Civil War plantation style house, stream, covered bridge. Just LOTS of things to paint.

BJ, I like the freedom expressed in your painting. I responded yesterday, but I don't see it on your comments. Eventually I will figure out this blogging.

Very nice color and shadows BJ! I also have places I keep returning to paint because there's just so much beauty out there.
