Meridian Fields...the Finished Painting Revealed

detail of Meridian Fields while in progress

I am not sure if you remember this image or was a WIP from several posts oil and cold wax painting.

It is finished now.  It seems to be taking forever to dry...I think it is because of the cold wax.  I can scratch paint off of it rather easily with my fingernail.  I have had to touch up the green grass three times to cover up my scratch marks.

It was inspired by this photo that I took close to home.  The lighting at sunset earlier this fall made these fields glow so beautifully.

Below is some music to go with the art...Eva Cassidy's version of Fields of Gold.
It's a beautiful song that was originally written and performed by Sting.

Have a great start to your week!
♥ Lisa
