7 AM Haybales, Acrylic and Collage, by Catherine Stone

Across the lane from my home, we are lucky enough to have a field which exists in a semi-wild state most of the year; grasses, chicory, clover, Queen Anne's Lace, and goldenrod.  The farmer mows only twice a year.  It is an ever changing vista of color,  light and shadow, and weather patterns.  This piece was sketched and painted along the lane and added to in the studio with water soluble crayon and collaged papers, some found papers and some hand painted tissue paper for texture and added interest.  9 x 7 acrylic on canvas board. Available. Contact me for more information.

A hearty "Thank You" to the members of SVPAP who welcomed me at Gallery 13's First Friday.  Great looking displays and well worth the trip from anywhere to see the Daily Painter's Of PA show...I recommend it!

You are lucky to have this view in sight every day--especially this time of year with colors of trees and grasses changing--so inspiring--Your painting is simple beauty and simply beautiful.

Welcome to the painting group. I am looking forward to meeting you/painting with you. This is a lovely painting. Haybales are fun to paint. Perhaps our group should meet here sometime?
