While out painting Thursday morning I just had about 45 minutes left before Julie and I had planned to leave and I thought I would paint one small 6x4 inch canvas. I was painting a huge oak so it is kind of fun to see this massive tree contained within this small canvas. The clouds had started to come in and I was thinking rain so mixed the paints and set the palette knife in motion. I love the spontaneous feeling of this painting. Thinking big and small made for, "A Painting Day".
