Ready for the Storm
It seems like the right day to publish a new painting of mine. It's snowing and blowing outside on April 4th! Here is a farm scene that is actually only a short distance from my home. I love the way it is nestled behind the snowy hill, far from the road. This picturesque farm calls to me to paint it as I drive by, any season of the year. I tried a slightly different style here, using short, deliberate strokes, trying not to overdo them. I think it gets across the idea of the sky during an evening, just before a storm, when all of the farm's occupants are safe and warm inside.
