Suburban Sunset

In this one I tried to capture the feel of a late afternoon walk I took with my family through the neighborhood. The puddle and the trail were added using my artistic license. Luckily I had just paid the renewal fee.

Riverwood View

A scenic street near where we live. I love the contrasts of colors and values and the serpentine shapes of the arching tree limbs.

Sunset Corn Planter

If you look through my paintings you will see that this is not the first time I have painted this old farm implement. I keep returning to it. The two buckets hold the seed corn and the two circular disks sticking up are laid down and mark the rows. It is usually pulled by a mule. This is on my great grandfather's farm that is still in the family. I once found an old children's schoolbook that belonged to my grandfather. In the front pages he had scrawled a note in pencil. "I walked behind a mule all day and my legs is so tired."
