Oil on Linen

I'm dashing off this post today. I need to pack for a four day trip with my husband. We're going to Brown County, Indiana for a rustic, art-filled weekend. When we first met, we took a trip to this area with some friends. This is where I believe we fell in love.

I've been there since on a workshop with my brother. We went four years ago and painted our hearts out everyday from morning til night. Nashville, Indiana was an artist's mecca in the 1920's, 30's and 40's. Today one can go into the art galleries and guilds and view some of these great works of art from the region. If you're interested, you can check out some of these artists here.

Hope to take some great scenery shots!

Have a good time traveling! Sounds fun and romantic. Lovely painting, too. The composition and sky are especially lovely!

The colors...the muting of an aumtunal mood...This makes me think of Turner. You are so talented!!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog corner of the ethernet!

Oh my Janelle, the colours in this are awesome.

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Absolutely love this. The colors are amazing, the lighter yellow giving a clue to the time of day.

Karen said...

Love the sky in this one!
Hope you've had a wonderful trip! Can't wait to hear about it. Hope you fell in love again, too. :)

Hi Melinda, It was fun painting a sky in green, purple and yellow. Thanks!

Hi Firelight, You're so poetic! Thanks!

Hi Liz, Thanks, maybe I'll do a bigger one with these colors!

Hi Catherine, You're very observant to pick up on that clue. Thanks!
