Small Ones

"Otto's Farm, First Day of Spring"
5x7" oil on board

For the paintings I do on location, en plein air, I typically paint 8x10" or 11x14".   These are convenient sizes to carry around and to complete in a short span of time.  Every year my goal is to paint a few larger works on location and this year is no exception, but right now I seem to gravitating towards even smaller works.  These 3 5x7" paintings are some of my recent efforts.

"Springtime on the Neshanic"
