This painting is part of Judy Mudd's ongoing series of farmland and barns. She was inspired after a day of rain when the sun finally peeked through the clouds near the end of the day. "The foothills held their moisture, creating lush rich green pastures but also dense fog for the following morning." Judy says.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also leads watercolor workshops and runs a real estate business with her husband.
