Hot off the Easel - The Knight's Gift

I think this little painting is finished, but after I live with it for a few days I might add/change some things.

The Knight's Gift - full painting

For now, I'm quite proud of it!  I was inspired by a little clearing near where I live.  I stopped the vehicle on the roadside and took photos.  My lads thought I'd flipped my lid, but that seems to be my new normal. 

A spot I love

For some reason, I thought of a knight, a horse, and an apple.

The Knight's Gift - crop

Once I got going, I realized the big tree in the middle of the clearing would take away from the characters, so I'm saving that for another painting.
