30 paintings in 30 days: Day 8

Today's 24"x30" painting is "finished." Many of my paintings go through this limbo phase. During this phase, the painting very well could be done, but I won't know for sure until I hang it on the wall and absorb it for a few days -- stare at it from every angle, feel it as I catch it out the corner of my eye while walking by, ask my poor husband a thousand times what he thinks of it...

I love the homestead just bracing for the oncoming storm. This is the third painting I have done from a series of photos I took back in May on a night when the air was so thick you could taste it and the wind in the wheat was as loud as a train.
