Felt, Idaho – 6″ x 6″ Watercolor

Felt, Idaho – 6″ x 6″ Watercolor

Felt was one of the most inspiring places I came across on my vacation in August.    The rolling hills went on and on and on.  I was even lucky enough to see a farmer, lovingly roving over his land, creating that artistic plume of dust.  I captured him in a plein air painting here.   I really want to go back there to paint again.  It was gorgeous!

    Somehow, Idaho gives out BIG sky. That is what I remember. Space, sky and land. That is what I remember. I love the depth you have captured with this painting, Beth.

      Well, who would want to miss all that? I’d love to go to Indiana again one day. I had a job once that took me to LaPorte several times . That’s as north as you can get, though. There’s no smalltowndad up there! 😀
