This is a 16″ * 20″ acrylic on canvas board. Painted in an afternoon in 2018, the lighting is similar to much of what was painted when I lived on this farm. It was in North-Central Alberta, Canada, where the sun is chronically low in the sky – even in summer. It lends everything a near chiaroscuro lighting that has always seemed very dramatic to me. My sporadic approach to painting things lends to an up-and down execution, and fairly erratic styles. This has a cartoony-coffee-house-ish feel for me.

It was given as a gift to one of the farm’s owners.
