Broken Oak - Acrylic 18 X 24

This is from an old white Oak on my brother's property near Mt. Sterling Illinois. I love to paint tree's with character, and I also wanted to try my hand at a challenging sky like some of my artist friends on facebook. Mike Wintermantel comes to mind as some one who does wonderful sunsets. I still got work to do,  to do justice to the photo I was working off.  



‎"Out of the Fog" 18 X 24 Acrylic

Had a creative draught this summer, and so this title is sort of a metaphor. Scene is a country road just west of Georgetown Illinois. The 18 X 24 picture is actually a prototype for a bigger picture I have planned.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hay Barn, Flurries at dusk. Acrylic 16 X 20.

I completed this picture in just a few sittings. There are some wonderful old barns on the trip between Cayuga and Georgetown Illinois. The hay barn above is one of those barns. I'm doing a little practice with this picture trying to decide what kind of mood, techniques I'm going to use on a much bigger piece of a large overgrown field, with two of these old beauties that I want to capture before they fall apart. Most barns these days are Aluminum, and so as they age don't have the beauty the barns built of wood.
