Bin Deere, Done That

Bin Deere, Done That; Oil on Canvas 11″ x 14″

While participating in the Fields project a few years ago, I strolled down a country road during the final hour or so of the day. Along the way, I experienced the sight of a tractor parked in front of grain bins and took a photo. I took the photo to capture the details of the tractor.

A couple weeks ago, I came across the photo and admired the great abstract design possibilities. I spent a few minutes making quick thumbnail drawings to play with the design and find a format that I liked. I decided on this design and started in on it. It is always fun when you can work on a painting that seems to paint itself. Before I knew it, I was nearing the end of the painting and began to get cautious about going too far. It is all to easy to overwork a painting.
