Holsteins Under Tree

by on Jan.25, 2012, under Acrylic Paintings, for Recent Art

About a mile down our Ross Inlet Rd near the West Catching Bridge is an old Fir at the corner of dairy farmer Ross’ pasture. The day was a bit stormy and most of the holsteins were gathered under or near the tree – a fun sight!

Ross Inlet Barn

by on Jan.06, 2012, under for Recent Art, Uncategorized

This other “farm” themed piece is of a slapped together barn that is almost up against Ross Inlet Road. From its south side is a fascinating angular composition with natural organic lines competing with artificial straight lines. But it was the angles with the sharp triangular building that first caught my eye.

First Farm-themed

by on Jan.05, 2012, under Collages, Printmaking

The next themed exhibit at the Hospital in Bandon is “Farm.” I didn’t have much dealing with agriculture although living on Ross Inlet Rd that is lined with dairy farm after farm. So, decided to go along the road and get some images and do a couple of Silkscreen Monotypes – I knew the spots that interested me after driving the road for the past 30+ years.

We are in the middle of winter and the pastures were pretty well battered and mucky. At the fence I was approached by a few cattle who were expecting me to toss a bail of hay – but, sorry, disappointment for them – all they could do is stand in the mire and stare and hope. For my first farm-themed piece I felt a need to show the feeling of beaten pasture, reflective puddles, and non-heroic animals surviving on the mashed earth at their feet. Through all the murk I used gold leaf reflecting off the puddles showing that sun and warmth are always lurking.
