“A Goodnight Rain” Oil on stretched canvas 8×10″ (For Sale) This is another oil painting experiment in response to several requests for landscapes. I found the reference photo in my archives from a hay field near Mountain Grove Missouri. A storm had just passed over and the sky was a wash of soft pinks, peaches and brilliant blues, birds were singing and the smell of rain filled the air and a cool breeze blew I had to stop and soak it all up like the dry ground. It was one of those moments where I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t in a fairy tale!
This was my first large scale, ‘mini mural’. It is four feet tall and eight feet wide. Before this I had only done 16×20″ art at the largest. Struggling with this sign introduced me to techniques I would need on murals later. It is located on North 95, four miles out of Mountain Grove MO.
