#87 - Backroads

11" x 14" Oil on gessobord

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.

#86 - Backstage of the Woodstock Opera House

Oil on canvas panel
8" x 10"

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.
