I think I should have named this painting "Monster Tractor" because the tractor looks like a creature peering out of it's cave looking for it's next victim. The pile of junk in the shadows could be a pile of bones. Every farm around here has these sheds for storage of every kind of equipment. This would pair well with the Red Barn. This was done with quality oils on an archival RayMar panel. It will need a frame
There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
