Eastern Shore Farm Pastel

Soft Pastel Painting - 11"x15"
This farm is located only a few miles from my home. It has been abandoned for several years. It is such a beautiful, lonely scene and I have enjoyed seeing it for years. I have wanted to paint the scene for some time and have envisioned the painting with an impressionistic style. I completed it a few months ago and anyone who knows the farm will recognize that I have taken artistic license (as usual) with the scene.
I am interested in doing more rural Eastern Shore works. Stay posted for some of those new paintings and don't forget, if you are not already subscribed to my blog, it's easy to do.
