Saltspring Pasture

Another sketch from my Saltspring Island sojourn.
In this piece I tried to capture that bright sunlight that
flashed up the field contrasted with the dappled shade
of this century's old maple, (the challenge may have
been out of my league =;-)).
Oil on wood panel 9 x 12.
Comments always welcomed!
"Use what talents you possess:
the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there
except those that sang best."
