February Frost, about 20x30, oil on canvas
When there is nothing to lose, sometimes the painting improves!
This painting started with enthusiasm, then got lost. I could hardly look at it. So I attempted some fixes with glazing, with the idea that if it didn't work I would just recycle it. Now it looks presentable. It took more than glazes - some minor composition changes and temperature adjustments helped this simple scene that jumped out at me from the side of the road. It was back in February. The weather had been warm enough that we were knowing spring was around the corner, but a little frost nipped the fields waiting for plowing.
