# 127 Planting Corn

Another effort to paint unique light on the extreme edge of the subjects, painting loose is actually nothing more than not finishing the work to a higher level of refinement. JLC

I really like the light in this on. I write this as I read your blog. Yes I agree paintings can be left even at the block in stage and be beautiful like a Milton Avery, more finished, like a Fairfield Porter, etc.
