Work in Progress

Here is the beginning of my first painting started in Iowa. We moved to the heart of the nation this past week and are settled in enough to begin painting again. My studio is still a wreck filled with boxes and will stay that way for quite some time. We were greated to Iowa by storm and tornado warnings this past week but we are all safe and sound. My wife and I already have had the pleasure of watching the grandchildren and just love it!

5-19-08 "Wisconsin farm"

The lady that gave the photo of this farm grew up on a farm in Wisconsin where her dad built a great round barn. She gave me several pictures of it from different angles. Sometime in the future I am going to put together some drawings and try to work out a painting of it. This will be the last blog for more than a week as we relocate to the state of Iowa. My son and his family live there and my daughter and her family live in Nebraska so we will be close to them. It will take us sometime to get settled in before I can get back to the computor to post a new painting. See you then.

Work in progress

One of my dear friends at church showed me her album of barns she has photographed over the years. This is one of her barns. I took the liberty of making it a winter scene and when I'm done there will be snow falling.

5-11-08 "Spring Fields"

As the spring winds blow and dry the fields out the farmer is ready to work them up for planting. All this must be done in a timely manner to get that seed into the ground.

Work in progress

Dramatic skies really help to tell the story in a painting but boy are they hard to do! I wanted a dark sky but not stormy looking. Two things have delayed my postings; my camera didn't want to focus for some crazy reason and we just took a trip to Iowa for a long weekend. Sorry for the delay.

Name Change

I've been throwing around the idea of changing my blog's name and then developing a web sight (not a blog). The name that seems to fit is Gibson's American Farm. All three words are descriptive of who I am and what I produce as an artist. I've applied to be in three art shows in Iowa this summer. It's been several years since I've been in an art show so there is a lot of preperation to do before the first one. We all hope it goes well.
