Chickens are a common, yet delightful farm subject.  I like
this mosaic effect of looking through the fencing wire at 
the chickens as they check me out.

Hobby Horse Farm

This is that place on a farm where old junk is stored.  The 
plastic hobby horse glowed from the sunshine behind it as it 
galloped through the trees.  The window made a great 
counterpoint catching the reflections of the sky and trees.

Yellow Mountain

The yellow gold of evening light in autumn changes the colors of those things that it touches as well as the shadows. I painted this valley last October plein air,  mid-day and was discouraged when the interesting clouds turned to rain and dulled the colors of the scene.  I repainted it recently changing the sky to yellow, suggesting higher mountains and let that set the tone for adjustments to the rest of the painting.
