I only had a vague idea for this painting of a house on top of a hill with trees behind and land tumbling out in front. I wanted to use a smaller rectangular canvas in a vertical format.  My sketches were only half formed and I had trouble starting because I didn’t really know where I was heading.  I think that this may be why this piece has a slightly wilder feel.

I gave a talk to a high school art class the other day on being a professional artist.  I hope the students enjoyed it as I know that I did.

One of the things that I said was that as we continue to paint, our style cannot help but change and that I’m not even sure that I could paint how I did a few years ago.  I first painted this painting in 2008 and no longer have the photo of it back then.  Then I worked on it again about four years later and finally again this weekend.

Below is the photo of how it looked before I worked on it over the last couple of days.  I feel the new version is less jarring, more peaceful.  The golden hill really came forward and the texture in the bushes and some of the land demanded a lot of attention as did the black areas.
