This is a painting I did recently in a workshop with Jon Imber hosted by the Concord Art Association in Concord, MA. The work is oil on canvas, 12 x 12, painted while on location at the Minuteman Park in Concord. My goal was to create a mood and strip the landscape down to the essentials. We painted only a few weeks back when the temperatures were perfect, the leaves just starting to turn their colors and the park quiet on a weekday morning. This park is the perfect place for plein air as the landscaping is varied, the vistas inviting, and the essentials of parking and a bathroom are available. The park rangers and grounds crew welcome our types. I will definately go back soon to paint.
