On Memorial Day weekend I headed out on a beautiful afternoon and set-up near this picturesque old shed. As I was cleaning up the owner stopped by and asked "What the heck are you doing?" He looked even more confused when I told him how much I liked his old shed and showed him my painting.
This is a from the same trip as the Lake Grandby post earlier. My family and I were on a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and came across this game pool, complete with bear tracks in the mud by the shore.
I was out driving late autumn in the backroads of northern Illinois and came across this scene. I liked the way the telephone poles and wires act like a gateway into the scene ahead, and I liked the warm colors of the harvested fields with the cool green grass bordering the cinder road.
Not too many people choose to paint the back of the historic Woodstock Opera House but we were walking downtown last summer and came upon the pickup truck in front of the half opened door and I snapped the picture.
