FINAL HARVEST, 8x10 PLEIN AIR LANDSCAPE by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this 8x10 inch plein air painting

During a plein air workshop I conducted for a group of other artists, we set up our easels beneath shade trees along the edge of these fields. This is one of the two paintings I did that day while teaching the workshop.

We wanted to capture this moment in our paintings while we could because the land was soon to become a new residential community. This was the final harvest, and we knew it would be our last chance to capture it on canvas. We saw heavy earth-moving equipment being brought in as we painted.

I have always been happy that I had the chance to record this before the moment was lost forever. In fact I was so pleased with the two paintings I did that day that I’ve had them both hanging on my studio walls since then. But now it’s time to let them find new homes, and so I’m finally offering them here. The other painting is in another of my eBay auctions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed painting them. And thanks for stopping to look.
