"Wheat Field Farm" Skagit valley, plein air , oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Wheat Field  Farm"   12x8 oil on panel  Sold
I recently took a trip north to paint up at Artists Point near Mt Baker. I stayed with my friend and painting buddy Mark Bistranin the first night. As is our custom we went painting near Laconnor to warm up the brushes.
 In this painting I was successful in rearranging some of the shapes I was seeing to make a more interesting composition. I also painted from the bed of Marks truck which gave me a higher perspective point. That worked pretty good and now I am trying to figure out how to attach a platform to the top of my van so I can paint from there!

lovely, Robin, but scary to think of you on top of your van. put a rail so you don't take a step back too far to view your work. please.
