Coming Home 2 / 12 in x 18 in, oil on wood / professionally framed / $425
I’ve been working on this one for a few days, and boy oh boy did it use a lot of paint! there’s a little bit of impasto, but mostly I just tweaked the colors again and again, trying to get the feeling just right. This is a farm house and park a few miles from home that I just love and plan to paint a lot of. The roof of the farm house is metal, and very shiny in certain light, and the grass has really neat reds and greens… With this painting I really wanted to capture the excitement of the cloudy sky, but also the way the colors of the land and of the sky work together.
