"Hay Stack" 12" x 16" oil/linen

I am pleased to be joining Marta Stafford Fine Art in Marble Falls this month. Marta was the gallery director at Riverbend and has opened her own gallery. I will be taking four new paintings to the gallery this weekend one of which I have displayed here. "Hay Stack" is from a trip I took several years ago to Trinidad, Colorado.
I came across this scene when I was lost on some back road trying to find my way back to town. The way the light was illuminating the hay stack caught my eye and I have finally gotten around to doing the painting.

Whenever I am lost while traveling, I take it I was supposed to look around and SEE with my camera, don't you? This is so wonderful!

Thanks everybody. Guess I should get lost more often on my painting trips
in order to find treasures like this one.
