I finished this Barley Field... it's a recent commission and I am very happy with how it turned out. This is my fourth version of it and each one is different. The first one sold immediately. The second one was a bit of a flop. The third was a little 3x3" that was a thank you gift. This one measures 6x8 and it's all ready for framing now. I might ask her if she wants birds in the sky... really far away just over the field. I would make them playful like they would be on a summer day (not organized and heading in one direction). But that could knock the balance off and I would have to add some blooms in the in bottom grasses. That wasn't the original commission, but this gives me lots of ideas for future pieces.

I am inspired to pick up some older photos and try them out too. I really liked the ones I did with fence posts. Other than that, I spent a lot of time gathering matting and I found some really great frames for the show. I can't wait to put it all together! I'm taking a lot of photos along the way for upcoming presentations.
Happy weekend everyone,
