#45 - Rolling thru Kentucky

8" x 8" Oil on canvas panel

We spent the last week in Kentucky and I got the green light to go off by myself and paint a couple times. This barn was near the entrance to Lake Barkley Resort and I painted it one morning before it got too hot. I love the vertical barn with the round hay bales.

#44 - Knee High by the 4th of July

8" x 10" Oil on canvas panel

On the way home from work the other day I encountered a cornfield and stopped to take a picture. I was especially drawn to the narrow strip of gold in the distance past the corn; another summer crop ready for harvest. I also liked the threatening clouds above (been a lot of those this summer in northern Illinois!)
