Open Spaces

I don't know why, but I have felt strongly, and have voiced it, that I need to be out in a big open field or meadow, or somewhere out in nature. Where the only sounds are birds and grass in the wind.  Weird! Maybe it's all the "stuff" going on in the world. Maybe it's the long winter. But I will find a way to achieve it. And soon. I'm going to ask Wade if he'll go run in a random field with me today. 
Anyway, this painting came from my imagination as I was daydreaming about the whole thing. I used lots of glazes, so there are lots of color layers.

  2. Laurie, love the spacious openness and the open-ended, almost unfinished feeling of this painting. So much possibility for all manner of things here. Trust that inner call to get out into the wide open.

    1. I did get out, Dotty. Not exactly a wide open space but a beautiful trail in the woods!

  3. Your painting would be a great spot for that activity - wide open space! I hear ya on needing to do that one. Soon as the mud subsides...
