I was surprised to find this on the studio easel when I came back from Bennington, as if painted by someone else. The graphic use of color — bread as an icon — the scale, design and arrangement of forms in a studio piece seem distant from the atmosphere of outdoor painting. I see color in a new way. A saturated blue patch of sky framed by dark emerald pines appears vivid purple. This painting went through many incarnations. It may want a few more.
