Two Studies from Full Circle Farm

A small study of the berry field at Full Circle Farm. I think of it as "August Sun and September Shadows" There is also something about it that reminds me of the art on those cheesy calendars we used to find hanging in abandoned farm houses in New Brunswick.

A little sketch of Griffin Creek which is the salmon stream that runs through the farm. The shade and overhanging branches create important habitat. I sat on a narrow wooden foot bridge while I painted this and was scared of dropping any brushes or leaning back suddenly and falling into the water. Despite this it was such a treat to paint on a sunny hot day in September in such a magical place!
