Farm Sheds

8x10 on masonite board
I am enjoying painting these rural farm scenes. The natural landscape in a mix with  the aging buildings makes for great blend of textures and contrast.

Red Barn

6x12 on canvas panel
Most of the midwest farmland is pretty flat. When you are on a high spot, you can see for miles. This painting captures the rolling hills that are dotted with barns and farm houses. The corn rows add a great texture ellement to the painting

Tin Roof

 9x12 on canvas board
In the south, you see lots of old houses with tin roofs. Rust may not be a good thing structurally, but it really adds warmth and charactor to the subject!

Back Road

6x6 on masonite board
Growing up in the midwest, I always enjoyed exploring the back roads running through the rural farmland. Small paintings like these are little widows that can transport you ( for a moment) to a peaceful, warm sunny day in rural America.
