Thanks Katie!

The colors are a bit off...The foreground color is more green than it appears here...Tungsten lighting, bleh...

I like this...it's very graphic...clean. (Sorry, that's probably a dumb word but I mean it in a good way.)

It seems the field in the foreground is fairly realistic, in the sense you see shadows and light and individual brushstrokes. And then, when I look next at the perfectly flat horizontal ground and the lovely rounded treetops, it becomes more abstract. And then (once again), the sky is totally stylized and it makes me think there's some strange mysterious world beyond.

Ha! They say the viewer brings their own "stuff" into any work and I just toted all that in...

I love it, and I thank olive oyl for toting in all that stuff, because now I don't have to. Totally agree.

Being from New England I can't help but wonder, is this what spring looks like in North Carolina? As I sit with outside temp of 15 degrees I am enjoying the painting. It is almost a creation by four brush strokes, 1. Sky 2.Field 3.Thin horizon 4. The wave of very green trees and no snow

Pretty much. Whenever I have to explain what living in North Carolina is like, I tell people to think "green".

Something is green all year round here, even when it's 15 degrees out...Lots of pines along with our hardwoods.

Thanks Greggo...

In the past, my landscapes have been too busy, so I'm trying to go simple and direct.

I like this a lot too, has a constrictive feel to it, in a positive way, nature dominated by man, as in garden opposed to forest. I like it turned vertically as well
