McCrady's Place is an old farmstead. The only thing left is the house.
All the other outbuildings have been torn down to make way for a big field.
It was a picture just waiting to be painted.
I added a picket fence to balance the composition
and ended up using some pretty bright colors.
The brightness kind of took away from the lonely feeling of the place.
I'm not sure that was the effect I wanted.
So I painted another one, this time later in the day when the sky
was going into a pink sunset. The grasses still turned out too bright
to say, "Lonely." I guess my optimistic nature rebels at drabness.
I put both of them up for sale on my Etsy site. Which one do YOU prefer?
