I have painted this scene across the road from us a dozen or more times.
Each time, it will sell at the next art show. Go figure.
It's the view outside my shop window and it changes weekly.
This week the dried blonde distant field is slowly greening while the rusty Bluestem is remaining red. Last Spring this field was burned to clear out the weeds and it came back beautifully.
Waiting for the grass to lie down and the green grass to overtake it again.
I cannot get enough of this view.
And time to start on a few flower watercolors - out of my element kind of.
I tend to stick with landscapes and buildings that allow me more looseness.
The flowers seem to tighten my hand and it will be good to make myself loosen up and let the water do the work.

Below - iris stems. I'll try this one again in more iris colors. These are a little too rose-y.
