Painting is 22″ x 30″, framed to a size of 29″ x 37″

This painting is inspired by the the rural, agricultural landscape of the Mettowee Valley – a broad, flat valley that runs along the southwest part of Vermont.

"Passing Storm"

“Passing Storm”

It depicts a typical agricultural subject on a mid-summer day as a summer storm passes in the distance.  While it is not a panoramic piece, it does have a panoramic sense in that more than half of the pictoral space is taken up by the sky while the overt subject of the farm occupies a relatively small area in the center-right of the picture.  The areas of space that define the landscape are covered with the greens of summer  in contrast with the reds of the farm buildings.

It is easy to get caught up in the notion that this is a painting of a farm. In reality, it is very much a portrait of the quality of light as it is late in the afternoon on a summer day.
