"Pleasant Valley Road Farm" 2014 oil on canvas 48" x 44"
This is a larger painting I made in the studio from smaller oil sketches done on site. I had trouble resolving the end of the driveway in the lower right corner. I didn't want the eye to trail off the canvas so I added the broken pavement lines on the road. While the entire driveway does, at times, look like a huge arrow pointing toward the corner, I think the white lines help to make the eye circle back up into the composition. One instance when I didn't people to keep their eyes on the road.
