More from Duffield. This is an out building in a yard in /near the "Hamlet" of Duffield, PA. This will probably be my last post for a few days. I'm guessing that my power will be out for a while. Here's hoping for the best.
As I was loading my car with groceries, I noticed this beautiful sunset so, I took the picture. I never intended to use it for a painting because, let's face it, sunsets are a bit cliche. It wasn't until I did a dump of my phone pics that I noticed the perfect position of the Target sign.
This is an the intersection of Route 30 and Route 416 near St. Thomas, PA. It's not a crossroad, it's the end of the road. You can go right or left but you can't stay on this course. How many times in our lives have we had to make this choice?
This is a painting that was started as a demo. I sometimes give my painting students a homework assignment where I give them a brown object, in this case a walnut. I have them paint it using no earth colors. The challenge is not how to mix brown but to find as many alternatives to brown as possible and keep the painting plausible.
This is the historic Harrisburg Train Station. This was near sunset which created these wonderful shadows on the building across the tracks. It wasn't until I looked at the photograph that I noticed the reflections on the brick pavers on the platform.
This is a painting that was started in the Autumn of 2011 as a demonstration piece at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, in Hagerstown, Maryland. Those familiar with the Museum will notice the reflection of the atrium roof in the bowl.
This is one of my favorites from this series. I had posted this before but I wanted to return to it and offer it at auction...and I have been pretty busy and haven't had time to paint the last couple of days.
This is a painting of a tree near my house. I wa taking pictures the other way and was getting frustrated because I kept getting my shadow in the shot so, when I turned around to give the sun a dirty look I saw this.
In case no one knows it, I have a genuine fascination with corn. This is a painting of a local farm during harvest season. I love the way they carve sharply into their fields like a barber creating a Mohawk.
