Country Landscape Painting of an Old Midwestern Farm
This the most recent painting off of my easel. I started this painting back in the winter, but then set it aside, as I was not sure what direction I wanted to go with it. I looked at it one day in July and realized then what sort of farm landscape scene I wanted for it! I sometimes do this with a painting and am always happy when the full idea finally comes to me. I went with one of those blue sky days with a sky full of those "big marshmallow clouds", as a friend once described them in one of my paintings. Just the kind of beautiful summers day that I love so much in the heartland!
