Wide Open

It is always much more challenging for me to paint small paintings. Small paintings certainly have a charm even as they may take as long to complete as a much larger one.
Wide open fields or prairies have a special attraction for me because they offer an unobstructed view of the big sky hovering above. The horizontal band of flat land contrasts well with the playful forms of clouds, vapor, or just plain air. Usually that translates best on a large format, but here is a small painting that turned out quite attractive.
