Just off the Easel April 25, 2013

My latest painting just off the easel is currently untitled with a generic name of “California”. The scene was near my wife’s brothers property in Gilroy. The dog and chickens were not there, but I 20x30 oil painting of a California landscape titled: The Beauty of Life and Peace by William Hagerman copyright 2013 all rights reservedthought they should be, although the man was actually there. I wonder if he was aware of the beauty that was around him with the evening sunlight on the humble dwelling and landscape. I imagine he was a worker hired to tend to the different crops. I recognized the corn stalks on the left, but for the flowering vegetation, I have no clue. I just painted it. I did see in other nearby areas fields with different colored flowers being cultivated. I guess this stretch of land was multipurpose.

Since I have yet to settle on a title, what do you think the title for this painting should be called? What mood do you feel when you see it? I would love to hear your ideas and comments!
