Field Of My Dreams, 5x7 Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

A friend of mine posted this lovely image as a photograph on FaceBook.  When I saw it I knew I had to paint it!  Even though I always think I don't want to walk Paco at night, as soon as I get out there, (if it's not below 20 degrees & windy) I feel like I'm floating.  Paco likes to walk up a steep hill near my house and I feel like I am IN the stars, so close to the moon.  It helps that at the top of the hill the street light is iffy - and it is very very dark, and velvety navy sky seems all around us.  

I thought about going back into this and refining the grasses, and maybe I will.

So was I thrilled to get to pick the topic for Girls Just Wanna Paint this month?  You bet - I already knew the painting I wanted to do!  So I picked "Nocturne" as a topic, and HERE is a link to our responses.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous night sky, Kelley!! I love it! I like the chunky grasses, myself. Makes the piece all about the view and shows the hug the night gives all it covers.

    Wanted to let you know, in case you were wondering, that I was "publishing" comments from my phone and apparently my meathooks landed on "delete" instead of publish with your wonderful words. It isn't the first time that has happened to me...I wish those words weren't so close together when I am relying on fingers instead of a mouse. Sigh...sometimes when I do that, I can catch it before it is too late, but sometimes I cannot. Anyway, I lost your comment and I am so sorry!

  2. Wow, what a Van Gogh feel this has to it. I love it. You and Pacp are lucky to walk in such beautiful surroundings.

  3. I feel the moon glow reaching me!


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
