running through a field

This is a close-up of the painting I worked on yesterday. The actual canvas is 16" x 20" -- and the sky takes up three quarters of the panel, just to amplify that feeling of impressive space overhead.

What I painted isn't quite what I see in my head, but the feeling at least is there -- one person, running through a field of flowers under a gigantic looming sky.

Where is she running.
Why is she alone.
Where are the people that love her?
Where are the people that she loves?
Are they in the horizon?
...Or are they behind her?

Anyway, it's not finished. This is just what I have so far.
