The Ware Family Farm
I have not posted for a week because I am in the process of finishing up on this painting of an old family farm just outside of Jackson Center. It is no longer standing. Thank goodness we have an old photo (2 1/2 x 4") to go by. I scanned the photo into my computer and printed it out as 8"x10" to work from which was very helpful. The finished painting is 24" x 42" and is painted on a gesso coated masonite board. I still plan to work on the trees some, but otherwise the painting is finished. It has taken a couple months to complete because I was also teaching a mixed media class this summer. It is a shame that this home is no longer standing.
