6 x 6 Oil on canvas panel. "Upcountry" is the upcountry part of Maui where the temperatures are lower, the flowers and produce is grown and the cows graze. It is where I lived during one phase of my life.
Ah....... the phases.........
This painting was done a few months ago. It probably is my personal favorite (or within a few) of the 6 x 6's that I have done. I entered it into the Randy Higbee 6" squared show but it was rejected, with 2 others chosen instead. It's interesting to see which paintings make it into a show, which paintings win awards, which ones you gather the most comments on and which ones you personally favor. I am so drawn to works with strong lines. I love very abstract paintings of crops for example - rows of grape vines or miles of agricultural land sectioned off in wonderful shapes.
Thank you for visiting!
