Thanks for sharing this again Doug.Those kind of feelings are the ones that will always stay with you and what joins us all to the brotherhood of the brush.
Here's mine----When I was alone and closing up the house after the 2010 members show I went up into JEH's bedroom-the one that looks out the back upstairs -and watched the moon come up through the trees from his bedroom window as I'm sure he did many times. Almost moved me to tears. I love that place. What a shrine.
Maybe others have feelings painting or being there they'd like to share?
Thanks Laurel - Following is an excerpt from a 2011 Blog in which I was asked what inspired this painting - "In this ‘plein air’ painting I had the good fortune to have nestled my easel on or near the very spot that J.E.H. MacDonald painted his famous Tangled Garden. I believe this fact alone brings the painting well beyond being a ‘simple’ landscape, since I was seeing, smelling, tasting, touching and hearing the sounds of theTangled Garden the same as J.E.H. did almost a century ago".
Ooh, I like it - subtle.
Nice sense of light Doug.
