I have a ton of photos.
Wonderful wide open spaces here on the prairie.
Gorgeous skies and ocean-like fields.
Of course, there are distant barns and farmsteads but these have been largely missing from my paintings.
It's time to add the hardscape to the landscape.
And I began with these two.
One is a pair of barns outside of Seward Nebraska.
The other is a roadside abandoned schoolhouse or tiny church.
Adding structures gives me a chance to play with shadow and perspective.
Slowly and surely improving.
