Here is one more in my mountains in summer series. There are few things as fine as a summer afternoon, especially here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cloud shadows creeping over the hill and framing the sunlit fields in the distance inspired me to paint this image. Again, working with shape and color, I also liked the directional pull of the hedgerows that created larger shapes with dynamic diagonal lines. Our season of summer afternoons is nearly behind us now, but it is nice to have those moments captured with paint.
Summer afternoon - summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language.
