Summer Landscape Hay Bales Impressionism Oil Painting Hazy Hot & Humid

sold
"Hot, Hazy & Humid"
6"x6" oil on primed masonite artboard

Oh, how I will not forget, that I longed for these summer days in the midst of a long snowy winter.  I will not forget, I will not forget...
I do love how the thick humid air and the overcast sky mutes the range of color and value creating a soft, unifying painting.  Before you know it, the sky clears and the details sharpen.  This is one of the reasons why I love to paint, the possibilities of a single landscape are endless.
