Albert Teske Farm, Circa 1900

6 x 9 Oil on Archival Board


This certainly is a departure for me!  My Daughter-In-Law was here and brought this photo of her family's farm.  As soon as I saw it, I wanted to try painting it.  It is much more involved with lots more people, machines, and structures so I broke it down.  My plan is to do it in sections, but this was my first attempt at it.  Now that it's done, I'm going to tackle the rest.  I don't do machines and have no idea what I'm painting, so I just painted shapes.  I actually did that with the people as well.  It was extremely hard to see their faces.  I just wanted to get their "essence".

  1. As usual, I can't see how you can make it any better.
    You're good at everything!
