Crimson Clover Time

"Crimson Gates", pastel, 6"x6", plein air painting

Went out with my painting buddy, Brenda, this morning in search of the yellow canola fields. We found 'em and photoed 'em but didn't paint 'em as it threatened to rain. As we wended our way through the countryside toward home we had a bit of an "equipment failure" right by a lovely crimson clover field. After the situation was remedied by a kindly "road angel" we received permission from the farmer to paint on his property where I knocked out this little 6"x6" plein air pastel piece in short order.
