...I've neglected to post.
These were quick studies and a joy to paint. The pallette knife is fairly new to me, but I find it very agreeable for landscapes.
This sunset occurred somewhere in Northeast Arkansas between Walnut Ridge and Newport, in the middle of winter. There had been some pretty heavy flooding that year, followed by very cold temperatures. The reflection on the water is actually from a farm field that had flooded and was frozen. I loved the way the sun looked through the icy fog.
This next one is part of my continuing series inspired by local food. Vanzant is a local orchard and I'm always excited when the peaches come in every summer. When you bite into one, the juice runs down to your elbow.
