This valley, with it's many farm fields full of mice and other small animals, is a haven for birds of prey. On a walk the other day we counted about 30 hawks circling one freshly tilled field. In this painting I tried to depict the edge of seasons--summer drawing to a close, harvest complete, the weather growing more changeable. I was also interested in how wild nature co-exists around and within our domesticated world.
Posts will be less frequent for awhile, as I work on larger paintings like this one, and prepare for the Open Studio tour next weekend. (In other words, I gotta clean up the mess!)
