Labadie Missouri

     Here's a new 8 x 8 in acrylic and glazes from a photo I took a couple of years back.  I was enamored by the geometric shapes in this pic.  They give the composition it's strength, I think.  

     It's completed in soft glazes of color.

Sunset shadows

I'm trying a new style, as well as a new medium.   Acrylic is not usually what I paint with, but I've been exploring it lately, since a friend did a demo for me a couple of weeks ago.  

     Here is a painting from a picture I took one evening, while driving in Illinois.  I caught sight of this scene, with it's intense red-orange as the sun was setting.  I've been wanting to paint for awhile.  Fun...
