A Study From Nature

The title on this postcard is "A Study From Nature, Twin Cities, Minn.," but it is impossible to tell where the scene really is. The card has a 1911 Minneapolis postmark.

I really can identify with this postcard because I have painted (or tried to paint) similar scenes. My attempts at plein air painting have been awful. I do have an acrylic painting of a similar scene, based on one of my fall photos, that turned out fairly well. This scene reminds of the types of scenes Impressionists painted, and I may try to use the postcard as a basis for a painting of my own.
