Coming Home

Oil on Linen

This is a painting I have been working on for the past two weeks. It is a little more conservative in color than most of my works, but I wanted to have a larger work ready for some of the upcoming juried exhibits. The one I was thinking about states in their mission statement that they are upholding the traditions of the Brown County artists that painted in the area in the late 19th Century...the most famous being T.C. Steele.

I always enjoy new challenges and finished the work with some glazes to pull some of the objects and areas of the painting together. The mood I tried to create was the late evening after a thunderstorm with the sky starting to open up and the cows returning home after their day in the fields.
