I almost called this Postcard from Nebraska. (Update: I went back and renamed it)
I painted it with a nod toward the style of and as a way of paying tribute to Julian Merrow-Smith and his (Postcards from Provence) blog. As I mentioned in my last post I have been blogging now for two years. Along with my friend (Darren Maurer) who got me started, Julian Merrow- Smith was one of the first artists I began looking at and studying everyday. I continue to marvel at his work and admire his fluid brush and rich color.

I love Julian's work too, who doesn't. Just thought you'd like to hear that I was checking emails and looked at Julian's daily post first and then yours. The minute I saw your painting, I thought, hmm... this looks very much like Julian and then I read your comments! Beautiful work!
I only subscribe to three artist blogs. Duane Keiser, Julian Merrow-Smith and Peter Yesis.
