Rolling Midwest

5.5x11 on masonite board
Growing up in the midwest, this farm is like a picture of an old friend. The Different Strokes from Different Folks chalenge was to create this painting from a black and white image and apply colors that we imagined. This is one of those scenes that can transport you somewhere for a mini vacation!

New York Street

7x8.5 on masonite board
The challenge for Different Strokes from Different Folks is a street seen from New York City. The bold yellow cabs stand out well in the shadows of the buildings. One of the elements that I wanted to capture was "the light at the end of the tunnel".
