You’ll probably notice this isn’t a typical composition for me. However, those trees were proud as can be, standing in the middle of the field. How could I break their hearts and not paint them front and center?
Hopefully you can zoom in to see the farm in the far distance. This was a truly inspiring sight, on Perry Road, just west of A-37. How blessed am I, that these oh-so-varied rural scenes are only minutes from our house?!
I love when paintings surprise me…taking me on a path that wasn’t planned. Such was the case toward the end of this piece.
One of these days soon, I’m going to figure out how to outsmart my iPad camera, which tends to take everything in “cool” tones. In the meantime, I’ll insert my recently-common disclaimer: the painting is a little “warmer” in color than this photo.
