The inspiration for this came from a photo somewhere in Illinois or Wisconsin. We were on our way to Minnesota and there are a lot of barns along the highway. I like the trees in this one and the light pole.
This one is my first attempt at a mountainous landscape. I see a few things that need to be differently, such as the trees on the left...less definition (for background) or to pull them closer to the foreground. Also, I should have pulled the mountain on the left all the to the foreground in one sweep instead of stopping at the horizon line.
Experimenting with letting the colors blend themselves. I was going to put this in the silent auction but TOM claimed it for his office. I am going to try another on...maybe make the mat so it will fit a 5x7 frame. I got a bit too heavy on the tree. Need to give the limbs more 'air'. Happy Saturday.
