(250) Keeneland in October
8 x 10, oil
Fall in Kentucky means Keeneland, especially beautiful this time of year, offering a grand opportunity to collect reference photos for paintings like this.
"A work of art revives and re-adapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world - the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air"...Leonard Berstein

POW! Chi!
Love the white, the movement, the red like matadors.

Mrs. Phillips, Lindsey shared with me your blog and I am in love with these pictures! You do such a great job! I didn't even know you were an artist! It was great meeting you this past weekend! I hope to see you around more often!
