The Blue Water Tower (available). Minnesota and South Dakota landscape paintings.

This is the blue water tower viewed from the road to the South by the new elementary school. We come this way home from Sioux Falls, and it’s a pretty view.

I find this tower challenging to paint because it’s so big and blue and solid – but I think all the color of the street and the grass coming through the snow and the red deciduous trees around the green pine trees, and the traffic and crazy blue sky – balance it out. What do you think?

This painting is also destined for the South Dakota Art Museum. I’ll post about it when it’s available in the gift shop there.
