Day 20 : An Oil a Day 30 Day Challenge

Day 20 : Person to Person

I love to paint wide expanses of prairie and sky with farmsteads on the horizon.
But I can't shake the feeling that they are somewhat lifeless until I add
what is always there but not so obvious - tall radio and telephone towers.
So I call this one 'Person to Person' as farms used to be
remote and out of communication until telephones came along.
And now we all have these little handheld devices that beam your conversation
up into the sky where it connects with a satellite
then beams it unbelievably to the person you wish to speak with.

I can see that this painting needs a little touchup but you get my message.
