"Summer Heat"

"Summer Heat"
6"x6" oil on canvas panel

It has been so hot and humid since the 4th that I haven't been able to paint outside, and inside it's even worse! This morning I decided to go for it anyway, went to Great Brook Farm, and stood under one of the pavilions while painting. Good move since it started to rain before I was done. I had been eyeing this tree for a while, such a nice shape above the other trees. I like the abstractness of this piece. What do you think?

  1. I like your big chunky strokes on this one. It has been challenging to paint outside between heat and rain, hasn't it. Not complaining though!
