Farm paintings: Do you miss the Midwest? South Dakota artist.

farm paintings with animals. I’d love to hear from anyone who has moved away from the Midwest and smiles when they see this sort of farmland. It seems like a home town can really be in your soul, and I’m hoping my paintings can bring joy to people who miss it. That they can be a piece of the Midwest, where you are now.

(This is my in-studio collection of mid sized South Dakota / Midwestern landscape paintings.)

Portrait artist paints a young woman

Last night I went to the life drawing group. I painted the model there for 2 hours, and then finished the painting at home this morning – which usually is a very bad idea but worked well, i think, this time.

Weekend in Minnesota

Last weekend we ‘camped’ in a cabin. I took lots of photos of beautiful farmland for painting references. I want to paint a handful of them. Lately the things that I’ve been really drawn to for painting material are the farm equipment and roads going off into nowhere. Here is a beautiful farm house.

On a personal note, my son went fishing for the first time last weekend. He’s been wanting to do that for a couple years now.
