"Pumpkin Farm", oil on panel, 5x7"

After a week of rainy weather and work responsibilities, I finally got out to paint on Saturday. I completed 6 paintings, and this was one of the first. I started out the day at the Adobe Pumpkin Farm in Petaluma. I've painted here before, but not in a long while, and the morning light was hazy and luminous. After all the rain, the ground was glutinous. I'd walk a few steps and have a couple inches of mud sticking to the bottoms of my shoes. They don't call it adobe for nothing!

Ah, I remember this time of year: the nip in the air and the mud on the shoes. Love that luminous kind of light too, and you caught it well.
