Painting #94 Fields of Gold

Do you ever have a song stuck in your head, and you're not really sure where it came from, or all the words, but it's so beautiful you won't want it to leave?  Usually, I hate the song that is stuck in my head, and do any number of crazy things to get rid of it (turn up another song super loud... whenever I start singing it, pinch myself... scream at someone else if they dare to start it up again...)

But, for the past few days, I've had "Fields of Gold" imbedded in my subconscious, and I love it.  In fact, when I think about it, I'm sure it inspired this painting.  I had been humming it when trying to decide that to paint today.  And here we have it!  "Fields of Gold" - the painting.  It's a 16x12 inch oil painting on masonite wood.  I love the radiance of the sky, the impressionistic hues and brushstrokes, and the sheer greeness of it.  
You can find this painting on my Etsy site:

You'll remember me when the west wind moves 
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky 
When we walked in fields of gold 

So she took her love for to gaze awhile 
Among the fields of barley 
In his arms she fell as her hair came down 
Among the fields of gold 

Will you stay with me will you be my love 
Among the fields of barley 
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky 
When we walked in fields of gold 

I never made promises lightly 
And there have been some that I've broken 
But I swear in the days still left 
We will walk in fields of gold 
We'll walk in fields of gold
