It took me a while to get where I wanted to go with this painting.  I wanted to be able to look at it and feel the tranquility of the setting, even though there is a lot going on with the paint!

Juxtaposition of colors, considerations of tone, and application of paint were some of the elements I dealt with on a daily basis.  I used both a palette knife and brushes.  Some colors were kept clean and separate and others were blended.  The natural tendency for me with this piece was to go more toward pointillism, but I made a conscious effort to blend some areas to reduce the busyness and balance the clean dabs of color.

I was drawn to the serenity of the scene and how the placement of the farmhouse and outbuildings were strategically built on the rolling hills by the winding creek.  I hope you enjoy!
