The 2nd of Dan’s Farmall Tractors siting on the canal. This was a nice compostion with the darks against the lights kind of rising up from the left corner up through the painting. It was a fun challenge trying to creating the illusion of the snow covered hill. I think this deserves another try in a larger format.

I’ve been practicing art in one form or another for most of my life and have been painting since about 2003. I do explore other medium but primarily use either acrylic or oil paints.

For me art has always been about the enjoyment of drawing and creating. It’s about challenging my eye, my brain, and my hands to recreate what I am seeing on a two dimensional surface.

So far, my paintings have been influenced by anything resembling old boots. In other words, anything that shows it’s character & history in the cracks and creases caused by use and abuse, weathering and age.

Other than that I paint things that are readily available. Anything around the house that looks interesting enough to keep me painting!
