bright light on the piedmont
12" x 16" oil on panel
This is a painting of a farm about a half an hour from my home. Earlier this spring as I drove past, I caught a glimpse of the line of farm buildings under the late afternoon sun. Clouds were rolling in but the sun was lighting up the tin roofs of all of the farm buildings as if they were glowing. It almost hurt your eyes to look at them. I loved the combination of the dark shadows and the really bright light on the landscape and in the clouds.... I hope you do too!
