Study #112711a-7x9-SOLD


another of the larger "mini's".

in driving around to find something to paint i found a cool farm way out in the country. the owner was a nice guy who gave me total access to his property. there was lots of farm stuff, large open fields, barns and outbuildings and this old truck and trailer. seeing them in the late fall light was just what i was looking for. these scenes are a huge part of the rural eastern NC landscape.

todays Hawthorne quote: "Make a house a note of color, make the blinds and windows a note of color, make the trees a note, the grass a note, the shadows also and make the sky stay away from it."

Well, it's more that the trailer reminds me of the house we stay in! But it's a beautiful painting either way.
