Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This is my contribution to The Phone Photo Challenge at DPW posted by Elaine Stolt.

This is the photo.
I zoomed in to the far middle background...the small bit of exposed water with ducks/geese around it.
My goal for this piece was to keep it extremely loose and to imply detail. I used my trusty painting knife to advance the foreground.
I have also have begun exploring a technique developed by a very skillful artist, Julie Ford Oliver.
I have merely scratched the surface of this process. She calls it fracturing...Check her out...amazing work!
