In from the Barn

"In from the Barn", 2008
pastel on Strathmore paper, 18" x 11 3/4"

This portrait is the beginning of a series of paintings of New England farming. Through these paintings I hope to show the farming community with its rich history, the connection of people to the land, and the pride and respect that farmers have for family and tradition. The classic, hand-hewn barns, live stock, and open fields are my subjects.
