Berm Along Grange Hall – Oil on Canvas – 16″ x 20″

Nice design opportunity with strong shadows falling across a quiet country road. This is a larger version of a plein air work completed last summer.

Tree Reflection, Oil on Canvas 20″ x 16″

Aiming to reduce my inventory of 16″ x 20″ canvases, I played with this design. I like the idea of making the viewer look at a subject in a new or unexpected way.

Soon after posting this photo on my Facebook site, Tom Linden Fine Art, one of the galleries sent a message indicating that they wanted the work for their display. Season opens soon, we’ll hope for a quick move on this painting (supplies needed).

Grange Hall Berm – Plein Air – Oil on Linen Panel – 8″ x 10″

I spent time painting a farm scene from the side of the road. The scene included the farm house and several of the barn and outbuildings. Although I was wrapped up in painting, my attention was diverted several times as I noticed the interesting effects of light and shadows on the tree at the far right of my design. Decided that I liked the possibilities enough that I returned a few days later to simplify my design and paint the tree. I plan to revisit this scene as the seasons change, which is coming soon.
