'Into the Light'
8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel
$40 Plus Shipping - Sold
Must have been in an interesting mood when I painted this one. It's a little dreary, but I like it. I've had this image in my head for a while now and it fell right into place. The scene reminds me of the rock quarry where my dad worked when I was a kid. There were hundreds of acres of land in addition to the rock quarry, most of which were undeveloped, or overgrown farmland with old barns and machinery like you see in the painting. None of the barns had electricity though - the light was added for interest.
Unfortunately, the camera was up to its old tricks so some of the colors in the image are not as subtle as they appear in person.
