Every person who creates art takes some time exploring new directions, style, and mediums as they feel the work they produce is "in a rut". I've been trying to force myself to try some new "stuff" for about a month now and I finally said to my wife "I like farms and I like painting them so that's what I'm going to paint. I don't care what anybody thinks!" So, I guess we are all stuck with Gibson's American Farm for quite some time to come.
The challenge for the above painting is to get the three small barns to appear to fall away toward the horizen. I want to put a farm animal in front of the barn door on the left barn.
