This is 4 x 6 and was done while sitting on my patio gazing out at the woods. Of course in real life you can see the fence and roofs in the background. It was fun to just paint the woods.

Are you sure you live in New York?

SO PRETTY, Joan!!!! I love the loose interpretation too ...! How funny, I too wanted something a bit looser than ususal ... guess it's summer and we're ready to relax! Good job -- did you find it hard leaving out the fence?

Joan said...

Jeanne - Yes, but not in the "big city." We're about 1 1/2 hrs from Manhattan, and there are a lots of spots out here that are very rural.

Lin - Thanks. It was easy to leave out the fence. I just added a few more background trees instead.
