Here’s the first of two landscape paintings that I will be posting today.

One of the things that I like best in a landscape painting is when it invites one to jump right into it. And one of the things that makes a landscape painting “inviting” for me is when the foreground has some elements that look close enough to touch, or maybe a rocky path that seems close enough to walk on. I attempted to capture that effect here so I painted quite a lot of the individual blades of grass.
