Farm Painting, 45 minutes in

I was just getting into this painting.. it was coming together so well... when the phone rang for an emergency.  And so it ends, at least for now.  The white areas are just canvas, but it's always interesting to think about how the value works in figuring out how they'll be seen when the painting is done.

People always comment on the how quickly I paint.  I know a lot of painters today were just getting set up when I got the call to leave.  And they plan on painting for hours.  I feel like I can never count on even getting out to paint and when I do, I'd better get to it.  This is why.
