Among the Tree Shadows by BJ Wright

10"x8" oil on RayMar panel, painted en plein air, alla prima, on June 17th...completed at 9:30am...$85 including shipping. The house hidden behind the trees is the Clisby Austin House, located in Tunnel Hill GA. The adjoining property hosts the annual "Battle of Tunnel Hill" Civil War reenactment in September. As shown in the painting, the hay was ready for mowing. I'll return soon to capture the bales.

I like this one too...nice balance...and pastel colour.

Thanks Chuck! The sun was so bright that morning, there was no way to keep from squinting - which I sometimes forget to do. And the house seemed to disappear behind all the foliage.
