"Rays" Oil Painting

8 x10 " Oil on Panel

Will be dropping off this painting later today at West End Gallery for the opening they are having this Friday, May 4, from 5-7:30 p.m.

It gave me a chance to practice on clouds and creating distance in a landscape.  I still have a lot to learn about clouds, but I think I made progress.

"The Grid"
It was one of my paintings I had started for "the Grid" from a photo I took of a farm pond on the way home from Ithaca to the lake late one summer afternoon.

Here's how it looked "before." 

Here is how it looks now.
