I have driven from Denver to Omaha so many times I lost count. One of the things I love to see as I drive is the farmhouses and buildings that dot the horizon. I have often wanted to paint these scenes, so here it is! I have used a pallet that is rather rare for me...this magenta color with purple and hints at wheat color. This is truly an unique piece for me, although you can see my paper stream and a bit of texture riding the top of my paper stream and coming out under a bit...It is hard to see these details in the photo, and also the brightness of the piece in this photo. No matter how many times of day and places I tried to photograph it I had trouble...so I'm a saying...it is a little brighter in the building and sky, and the bit of texture just pops without being over bearing!
I've stained the sides a color to compliment. This painting comes ready to hang with wire on back, but it's 1.75" depth allows for sitting or leaning on a shelf. The cradle gives this a contemporary look that does not need framing!
