"Cut Field" along the Trans Canadian highway.

"Cut Field"  8x10 oil on panel    SOLD
We spent two days driving across seemingly endless prairie. Huge vistas of big skies and distant horizons.Cattle were scattered across the landscape and the Canadian Pacific Railroad followed along most of the highway. I love the stark beauty of those scenes and now it's my job to try and take my memories, some sketches and some flat lifeless photos and create the mood and feeling I had while traveling through Canada.

Robin, It's nice to hear a painter of your quality say that clouds are a challenge. I thought it was just me.

Like Nigel said, the composition stands out in this one.
