oil/canvas board

Oklahoma received it's March snow storm over the weekend.  I had at least a seven inch accumulation on my patio furniture.   So, please, surely now it is spring.  Snow has all melted and today it is 70 degrees.

Well, there was no snow in my studio so I painted from a photo that brought back memories of a warm day near Taos.  There were five or six of us painting down this side road that led to an old adobe church.   In a close by field, a multitude of sunflowers were blooming.  I am remembering the one guy who was with us standing hip deep in sunflowers with his french easel set up and painting the sun flower field.  I have a photo of him there.  I wonder if he remembers......


  1. We had some snow in Ohio too. Ah..but Spring has arrived and we have it all before us!

    Love your well done landscape. Each plane is handled perfectly to show depth. I like the areas of red in the foreground!

  2. Thanks, Dean, for your nice comment. We have warmer weather now, the grass needs mowing, and the Cleveland pear trees are white with blossoms.
    Spring is certainly welcome.

  3. The colors and freshness in this painting are
    wonderful! A promise of spring!
