Three by BJ Wright

8" x 10" oil on linen board, painted en plein air, alla prima on June 16th (completed around 10:30am) at the Chickamauga Battlefield in Northwest Georgia - $85 including shipping - contact me for purchase ----
Sandra and I spent the morning at Chickamauga Battlefield painting the rolling hills and meadows. Occasionally a hiker or biker would come into view, wave, then disappear around a bend.

The sun was fast rising and so was the temperature, so I painted quickly. A lilac colored haze in the distance reminded me that there was once cannon fire here - but now there is peace.

Contact me at beejw@charter.net for purchase.

Thank you so much, Phyllis! It was getting hot and I tried to capture just the spirit of the scene. I appreciate your comments!
