Queen Anne's Lacey Meadow by BJ Wright - SOLD

10" x 8" oil on canvas covered hardboard - painted en plein air, alla prima - $85 including shipping - SOLD - thanks LS Manis !! -
Wednesday morning was hazy and overcast; the sun just wasn't showing through the clouds. I chose to paint this clump of trees at the meadow's edge. There just wasn't anything special about the scene and I was becoming disappointed at the outcome. But just as I was completing the foreground, the sun peeked through and the Queen Anne's lace seemed to spring up shouting "Look at us!". I smiled and instantly knew the title of this little painting.

Nice one BJ! I like the shadows under the trees, it looks nice and cool under there.

This stand of trees has thick underbrush and is in the shadow of Cheetogeta Mountain (the railroad tunnel runs through it). Even in the heat of July, you can find shade there. That's good to know during the Civil War reenactment in early September when it's still hot.

Thanks for the nice comment! I just love to paint in this park. There are so many combinations of shapes, colors and shadows to work with.

I like those violet shadows. Good work. Been pretty busy up here in Tennessee.

Thanks, Chris. It's always nice when other artists like my work.
