Saltspring Hay Field - (SOLD)

Hello everyone,
This painting was done en plein air on Saltspring Island
where we just spent a wonderful three days, painting,
fishing and enjoying the sunny weather.
This scene is at the foot of Mount Maxwell and was a
perfect place to start painting. While I painted
several Turkey vultures landed and wandered around
on the short grass hunting for small morsels of food
which seemed to be plentiful in this recently
harvested hay field. Swallows seemed to be swooping
and darting every where, which is a joy to watch.
All this activity did not stop the wave of calmness
that always envelopes me when I can sit
and take in a scene such as this.
Oil on canvas 6 x 8.
Your comments are always welcomed.

the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."
