I have been inspired by the Midwest landscape for many years. The sprawling fields, rustic barns and sheds are a few elements that capture my interest. I began painting these old structures around 1995 and have painted over one hundred landscapes since then.
After painting my collage papers with acrylic pigments, I begin the design with general shapes and edit as I go. Most of these big shapes are tacked on temporarily with a glue stick while I work and edit the composition into a pleasing design. This particular barn is gray with a red roof, blue fence and has two silos nearby. I like using acrylic because of the texture and thickness of the paint, and using bright colors. For added interest, I used pieces of an Iowa map for the puffy clouds.
