A freezing rain last night--not a good weather to paint outside. The wildflower meadow field at River Farm along the Potomac River was in full bloom with fall flowers when I painted this piece in Sara Linda Poly's plein air class. I just hinted at them with yellows and violets. The bank of land in the background is Maryland. There is a running joke among my painting friends: the Marylanders paint their home state bigger than the Virginians. Can you tell I am a Virginian?
