Fence Row 3

I've been working on this 24 x 36 painting for a couple of weeks. Another in the trumpet flower series that been recurring over the last three years. I was looking to do one with a little more "presence" and this is what came out. Tired of the wet weather and wishing for summer sun.

You can find these naturally occurring flowering vines weighing down the fence rows beside the fields here in SW Ohio. The blooms start coming on around the time of the first hot weather, end of May or early June. The flowers last about a month and the ruby throated hummingbirds love them. Probably developed together, the birds' beaks being suited to getting down the long bell of the flowers.


  1. Beautiful painting!!! I feel like I'm back on my grandparents farm when I look at it.

  2. its really beautiful! Good Job on the shadows and the grass!...Daniel
