Quick oil sketch in  consecon this afternoon

I painted out in the county this afternoon. This was really fast, sort of like scribbling it quickly with oil paint as my hands got cold and colder. I was glad to be there anyway. That cat passed across my sight line on the way to sit (and hunt maybe?) in the tall grass on the left, so I sketched it too.

I went back into this sketch and tried to pull out more.

This is alla prima and sketched from life.  The flowers are from my garden except for the butter and eggs and goldenrod, which like the little apple, are wild.
