#4 of 10 Plein Air Paintings of Great Brook Farm

"The Meadows"
6"x6" oil on canvas panel

I painted this one at Great Brook Farm in Acton, Mass, this morning. The scene is on the unpaved road going south from the farmhouse towards Meadow Pond (the other end of the pond than #3). I tried it one morning last week, but ended up wiping it off. This time I was able to get what I wanted, all the different greens and the pink of the loosestrife. I was literally alone for more than an hour, just me and the scenery. Bliss!
