I painted this last year and wasn't satisfied with it. I pulled it out and did a wash to darken the upper 3rd of the sky. I think it's done now.
Acrylic on 24" x 36" canvas
C&C please.

Gorgeous! At first glance it's so tastefully simple, but the subtle details give it more complexity the longer you look at it. I love the textures at the horizon, and the way the bottom bleeds give the impression of tall grass swaying in the foreground. Reminds me of a foggy morning sunrise on the farm.

whoaaaa!

There is much good art posted on WC,
but,
this is top level, museum quality ART!

Absolutely a visual treat, the subtlety is eye-catching
the blending is spot-on...the color choices ....
etc etc etc

A stunning eye-opener early this morning with the sun just breaking through. Jim, I think your revisiting this one paid off in spades. Truly awesome work!

LOVE IT! It's a little like the style I've been painting in recently (haven't posted yet) but much much better -- as well as more abstract. Great painting, Jim.

Very nice. I like how it could be a multitude of different things.

It's a great vista.

This is indeed a stunner! Well done. Excellent how you used such a variety of transitions/edges!

I like the darker wash at the top it adds a lot more drama -cool piece

The dark at the top is a winner.

I love it. I especially like how the violet sets everything else off.
