This was done from a photo taken awhile ago. I am ready for spring!! And some green! Anyway, it was interesting to paint a landscape without any sky and still make it work. Lots of artists are good at it. I like the more intimate feeling it gives. Out here there is so much open space at times it seems thats all there is to paint. And it can be very haunting and wild feeling, which I usually like. It was good to do this type of scene for a change.
