Jones Valley

36 x 62
oil on canvas
Jones Farm II

This is a HUGE landscape I just finished for a commission. This was life changing. First of all, I had never stretched a canvas before. Done! It was a challenge to stretch one so large, but I did it! Then just covering that much space was a challenge but it was so much fun! And I think I took at least 1000 pictures of Jones Valley in the process! So I have lots of painting material. I have actually done 3 paintings of this scene. I have one more shown below and am still tweaking the other one. I hope you all enjoy it.

I actually painted this one first in preparation for the HUGE one! I changed some of the composition for the large just because it was so large. But I had fun with this one too. They had actually just baled the hay while I was painting these so I really wanted to include some of the hay bales because they looked so pretty out there.

This was actually done as a graduation gift but it was so fun to do that I thought I would post it. Hope you enjoy looking!

I never stretch my own canvas either, but as I start working larger, I plan too. A friend of mine does all of her canvas stretching and she says it's pretty easy. Love the painting...it looks like such a happy place!!
