"Thanks Micki! I spent many a car ride here in Texas in the back seat of my parents car looking out the window at plowed fields and growing crops as we cruised down the highway. I really wanted to try a capture that shared experience with this…"
I love this! I love the liberty you took with the colors. I have spent time staring out the window of my parent's car growing up looking at rows of soybeans. It is dizzying to do this. Your painting gives me that feeling. Excellent…"
"I like this a lot. Beyond the warm colors and soft sky, I really like that I can sense the motion of the car in the rows of the field. You capture and preserve that instant of speeding by and catching a glimpse of something beautiful."
"You are so right Mike! I think it works because of the geometric composition. It's as if the subject is the geometry. Man's hand in the field, nature's hand in the lovely sky. A sort or peaceful tension.
Ha, it brings all these…"
"Brad, It's an intriguing geometrical composition. In my opinion, that alone carries the painting. I think you did a masterful job on the sky...so airy and wispy. The horizon slices through the middle. Purists say…"
How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
I painted and took art classes all through high school and one or two in college. I literally did nothing after that for almost 25 years until taking two painting classes in the spring of 2014 at our local art center. Now I paint every day!
What other mediums have you used?
I do acrylic landscape paintings from photos my wife or I take from places we travel. And we love to travel. Every once in a while I contemplate trying oils...
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
Better brush technique and to just be more confident and fearless! To know when to push it and when to stop!
