"Colorado Haystakes"

An Oil Painting In-Progress

The background of this oil painting is dry enough that I am able to continue working on it.  I thought it would be fun to share a few stages with you, and so here it is after 3 different sittings/workings.  Today I will devote much time in creating subtle details and I will post the results with my next entry.

The idea for this oil painting came from a road trip on our Harley last summer.  We were headed from Scottsdale, AZ to Crested Butte, CO.  When we are taking motorcycle toad trips we always travel the back roads of America.  It is in doing so that we get to see and feel all the beauty that surrounds us.  I always have my camera in my jacket pocket and take numerous photos. 

This particular painting is a result of a combination of 3 photos.  I really feel it has great potential and also, as I'm working on it...I can almost...almost feel the wind on my skin and smell the freshly cut fields.

May you day be one filled with heightened senses, light, peace and love...Amy©
