Out of the 260 paintings I did last year, only a few were rejects; I posted all but five paintings: this was one of the five that was never posted. This painting is a dramatic remake of the original. The original had no hay bale and no sky holes; in fact it had no focal point and I'm not sure why I chose a group of trees with a partial view of the parkway through them. I did have great fun remaking this; I really enjoyed the creativity of playing around with composition and ideas and I am proving to myself that the year of daily painting was incredibly beneficial in getting me to the point where I can improvise and compose without "written music"!
