The Way of the Farmer____16 x 20 oil on linen for On the Way exhibit in Austin at Hill Country Bible Church AND
for Passing America: The Great Plains in October at the Great Plains Art Museum at the University of Nebraska
This was painted from a photo I took at the farm a few years ago, while Aunt Nancy, the farmer, drove past my studio window. I have ALWAYS planned to paint it, and finally....now! It will be on exhibit at Hill Country for a while, then I will FINISH the painting for my Great Plains solo show....Yes, it is not finished. THIS PART is, but I will add a few IMPORTANT things before I will call it "done"....can you guess?
When I am at the easel, I do not FULLY appreciate what I am doing. You artists understand what I mean...
While DOING it, you are in "one zone" which I call "the VERB - painting"....
LATER the artwork becomes a "NOUN"-(THE painting). Today I looked at the Romeo I posted yesterday, with tears...it LOOKS like him exactly.
I posted this link once before, but here again is my FAVORITE thought on DOGS....it's fun, and MEANINGFUL! When you play it, PLEASE think of your favorite dog :) And Be blessed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H17edn_RZoY
Some of you will see me at sunrise!!! ...or so! See you at the workshop!!!
