Farm Field Sunset




Farm Field Sunset
24x24
Oil on Linen

This painting has been in the back of my mind for the last five years.  I took the photo of this scene at the farm years ago and have always considered painting it.  Guess I just couldn't find the words.  Until now. When I decided to finally paint it, the painting just spilled out and over the canvas.  

That's probably why some artists say that even when they're not painting, they're still painting.  Some ideas just need to percolate.

A very beautiful painting, romantic with the warm sun setting sky and dark earth. It is incredible to think you have created your vision of this scene from the photo you are showing us here today. Great work Janelle.

Hi Jill, Thank you so much, you're a dear!

Hi Caroline, Thank you so much! I love visiting you blog because your skies are a true inspiration!

Hi Willow, Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to the ball and have already picked out a dress, shoes and jewelry. Now for a date, sigh.

I love this one, Janelle. I know what you mean. There's a few "masterpieces" inside my head, too.
