Notes From My Fair Oaks Residency
Henry and I had a swell time today at Fair Oaks. I decided to take another crack at the Collins Field rye, which is in another part of the estate from the field I painted last week. This is a difficult subject for me with lots of challenges. I've not found a way to paint it quickly. This little painting took me several hours to complete. The texture is complex, and the color is very subtle. A lovely way to spend the day. Henry and I found a nice shady spot. He snoozed on the seat next to me while I constructed the painting.
Joe, Danny (not in view), Mark and Rick chowed down on delicious lasagna and pizza. It was really good!! Our canine children Shane, Buddy and Henry enjoyed the cool air conditioning.
As always, I am deeply grateful for this residency.
