8" x 10" oil on hardboard
I like this scene - it's the kind of place you take your dog for a long walk. Unless you were actually there and realized how HOT it is! At least the temperature doesn't show in the painting :-)
I did a study of the scene a few weeks ago, as a Start, and was really happy with it. I think cropping the tree made all the difference in the composition. I have a tendency to leave "head room" around everything, which doesn't always make for the liveliest scene.
