More on my artistic side.

I would like to share some of my paintings and drawings.

A painting from my past.



I am very frustrated for not being free enough to get any painting done. I was finishing one to two paintings a week for awhile then it all stopped.
This is a painting I created one summer while I was in Minnesota.  It is acrylic on a smooth panel.  I always thought I would return to it and place an animal in the front right side.  As I have lived with it I really like the vacant feeling and the style of the whole painting.  It is so clean and simple in style and I tend to go to opposite extreme with too much detail. Maybe a chicken or a sheep would work there, huh?
I will continue to share other paintings of my past until I get myself back on  a painting on canvas schedule instead of painting  bathroom walls.

I need to have my wife photograph this. I notice that the right side is out of focus, not painted blurry.

yes, i can see one lone brown hen in the right hand corner.... but then...I'd end up painting a big old rooster coming out of that barn... so she wouldn't be lonely..

I love this painting! Chickens or sheep would work...maybe both.

Sometimes plain speaks for itself. It can hold it own at times as in your fine painting here. Looking forward to more of your past paintings. Thanks for sharing your creative talents! See yah

I really like your barn paintings. We got some good photos of barns last week. They have such character.

I think you just need some weeds or tall clumps of grass or dandelions blooming along that barn...:)
