Closer ... Still

"Closer ... Still"
8" x 10"
Oil on hardboard
When I finished the first painting, the light had changed and I moved closer to the pond, cropping out many of the golden weeds.  I focused on the purples in the landscape and enjoyed the stillness of the beautiful summer morning. 

This was a thirty-minute painting. It doesn't have the detail my paintings in the style of Andrew Orr have, but it looked finished to me, so I stopped.
