I don't tend to paint many scenes that focus on nothing more than some bushes, grasses and trees. Sometimes though, there's something about such a grouping that makes me take notice. It may be the shape of the trees or the textures in the bushes and the subtle variety of colors in the mostly green scene.
This painting of a meadow at Ward Pound Ridge in Katonah, NY had that kind of allure. It's a simple subject, although not necessarily simple to paint. It also makes me think of the artist Albert Handell who often picks unremarkable nature subjects but creates wonderful compositions with them.
