As you can see I did a little re-decorating last night. I thought the blog needed a change . I got the idea for the thumbnail gallery from a posting on (the DailyPainter.com)

. All the bugs aren't worked out yet . It will take me a while because I'm no tech wiz. Anyway, I hope you like the new look. Let me know if you see any problems.
I need to do more regional art.
So here is one I thought would be fun.
Nebraska landscape painting 101. Find a field ( corn or soybean), paint it.
In this case I took reference photos and did field sketches.

As I type this there is a blizzard outside. Snow blowing everywhere. This painting is a reminder of what is coming. Soon I hope!
Love that sky Peter...and the light spots coming through the trees.
Beautiful painting -- love all the colors in the sky. Everything works so well together --
Such a reminder of my grandparents farm, though it was in CA it brings back fond memories. Lovely.
I like the composition of this -- it really mirrors the feeling you get of walking through a farmer's field and happening upon a group of hundred year old trees.
a really lovely painting of such a simple composition - nothing classically beautiful but you've made it so. I like the fresh growth springing up - you've really caught the season well.
