Faraway Farm 2. Oil on linen, approx. 5" X 8". 2013.

As you may know, I'm a member of Loudoun Sketch Club.  This plein air painting group visits some of the best farms, estates and other scenic places in the area, most of which are privately owned and I wouldn't otherwise be able to paint.

This is a one hour sketch from Faraway Farm in Bluemont, a continuation of my theme of keeping the plein air work to smaller paintings, sketches and studies.
