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!

Hi Jim. I really like what you've done with the DSFDF challenge. I've only looked at the photo and procrastinated about getting started.

Your colors and shading really bring your painting to life.

You definitely looked like you "felt at home" with this painting. The rolling hills and distance you've created are perfection.
