A walk in the field can be both peaceful and surprising sometimes. On this day an old red barn emerged from the grasses as I looked up to check my path. The sound of birds singing in the trees circled in the background atmosphere. As I stationed my easel and nestled in for some painting, the landscape seemed to become more still. I waited for animals to emerge but that never happened. Just as well a cow in the grass might have been too much of a surprise for me.
This small farm landscape is full of color and marks of interest that I hope convey an element of surprise and joy often found on a walk in the field.
