Miriam's Meadow

"Miriam's Meadow" is one of my revisionist landscape paintings. It was started on site in Miriam Good's meadow on Lower Sugarload Key in 2008 and then finished in the studio. I thought it was finished but there were areas that bothered me that I just didn't know what to do to correct them. Last Thursday our Sugarloaf painting group headed back to the site, so I took the painting out there and with Jim Salem's (our instructor) help I finished it. I added some more reflection in the water and I added some levels of interest in the area between the tree groupings. This painting is large 40" x 30" on canvas. I am going to put some edging strips on it tomorrow. I haven't decided whether it will go in 7 Artists or the Key West Art Center.
