I never realized just how impressionistic your paintings were, my friend. I was just comparing your grasses, especially those in foreground to the area you were in and realized how beautifully you captured that overall color effect. Amazing! Truly a beautiful piece and it so makes me wish I was there painting too.

Wait a minute. the painting has clouds and the photo doesn't. artistic license? j/k. Beautiful painting and I agree with the quote.

BEAUTIFUL...SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL.
I sometimes agree with the quote but I am from the rainy part of England so it usually cleared up in the late afternoon. naturally, that became my favorite time.
