Back on the farm, my weekend in the neighborhood. At home but on the road x's 2

71 & 82  F,  mostly sunny!
This was today's painting,

#405 Delavan Rd.

8 x 10













I did this scene last winter, The panel blew into a snow bank.








The first darks.















The orange tone was better than the dark red I tried the last few panels.















I was thinking of doing a little video but I wasn't up to it, I didn't even take that many photos.


















This is where I ended up, I was looking east, and behind a tree, although I like back light, when the sun starts to go down I'm often looking strait at it and that can make it hard to see.












The scene, I liked the road going through a tunnel of trees, and the silo on the hill.















Sight size shot .

















Easy!

















The corner of Lincoln Hill Rd. and Delavan Rd.























This is from January of this year, I was on the other side of the road.
















Yesterday, (Saturday, 9-20-14) , I went down to Center Cambridge, the intersection of County Rte 59 and Center Cambridge Rd. I've wanted to include these grain silos for a while.












 The road has a lot of drama to it.

















It was warm and windy yesterday afternoon, but this 9 x 12 did not blow over.















The silo ended up taking a back seat to the road, which is a theme I'm drawn to. There is also a truck in there and I don't often have trucks.














This is where I ended up.


#404 County Rte 59

9 x 12












Money Shot.


















This is my spot, it's a reasonably busy corner, but an awesome scene.

The road is not only a formal lead into the scene it's an allegory for going down it, it's universal, iconic.
