BARNYARD BOSS / Daily Painting #1150

Pen and Ink / Watercolor / 6 x 9 inches

Here’s one more “confection”, a rooster that we raised from a chick, along with another rooster and a variety of hens eight or ten years ago in what seems like another life already. There's just nothing more soothing to me than a yard full of clucking, pecking, scratching, contented chickens.

Be the first person in with a $100 bid, because the first hundred takes it!

Life isn't easy in the dry country on the edge of the plains. For proof, take the train from Lamy to Dodge, and count the abandoned homesteads, the empty homes, and the faded dreams as they pass by your window.

And, yet, for the strong of will, the determined, those who persevere, the air is clean, the stars are bright and many, and the rewards are real.

SOMEWHERE ‘TWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL Daily Painting #904

SOMEWHERE 'TWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL

Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Remember my trip out to Victorville with my pal Steve Immel to pick up Betsy? Well as we were leaving New Mexico, I snapped a shot through the car window with my iPhone of this isolated farm, somewhere between Abiquiu and Crown Point. I'm not really sure where. We were moving pretty fast just then. Anyway, I've run across it several times while sifting through my research, and been tempted to paint it, but couldn't quite figure out what I wanted to do with it. Then, today, it struck me. Break a rule or two. Stick the horizon right half way down the panel. Thenbalance the tiny but important house equally distant from the larger but less significant barn. Crop the pond, even if it means losing all ability to judge its size, and, all together make it fit the title.

I almost always have a difficult time naming a painting, even after it's finished. this time I had the title first, and painted to it. No traffic, no noise, but no good restaurants, either. Somewhere 'tween heaven and hell.

I'm starting a new series with step by step explanations over on my other blog, so be sure to…
