Where I Began Is Not Where I Finished

Napoli is still on my mind, but I've also been painting outdoors.  This is a 12x12 oil on panel that I worked on for three days.  In that brief time, the trees sprouted leaves, so even though I stood in the same place, where I began is not where I finished.   This location shows a stream that runs through a farm in Williamstown, MA.  It's actually where the farmer crosses with his tractor to bring hay rolls to the cows, which he did several times while I was painting at this spot.  The cows cross the stream whenever they feel like it.
