Rain in the Orchard


I was distracted and felt stuck which is mostly rare. So I began looking through the thousands of images of other painter`s work I`ve collected on my hard drive. I`ve recently re-discovered George Inness and have looked closely at what he did. They are so romantic as to be sentimental at times, but I ignore the human narrative and just drink in the atmosphere. That man spent considerable time outdoors! HE is the master of light!
I did this in his spirit as I figure out what`s next.
