"Kirkpatrick's Valley"

"Kirkpatrick's Valley" oil on panel  10.5" x 14"

Using my plein air study for reference, here's my studio version of this farm scene, located in an absolutely gorgeous vallery near Asheville.  It's not often that I find a subject that is near perfect "as is", but this scene needed almost no editing to create what I think is an effective composition.
