Farm Trailer

Farm Trailer
9 x 12, oil on panel

There is lots of farm equipment on the farm here. This one struck me for the texture of the peeling paint and the grasses growing around it. It looks forgotten and abandoned but it is not. I don't normally like to paint a square-edged object like this or a building but when it is softened by vegetation, like this one is, I find them most intriguing. There is more of a story to it.

This one was done 80% en plein air.

Terrific Eileen. Your tonal control has led to the intrigue and mystery of the piece, very subtle, quite magical!
