The Homestead ~

oil on linen, 24" x 32"

This view looks from Cedar Creek Vineyard to an old farm, owned by a friend. I've wanted to paint the three pine trees since I first saw them, years ago, but that didn't happen until Shane took a nice photo of them for me. Painting an old cabin nestled into the hills could be a cliche of Kentucky, but I enjoyed painting it and I like how it looks. The cabin trumped the pines in a way - I thought of calling it "The Haunted Farm," because it reminded me of a haunted cabin that a friend of my sister took me to see when I was a child.
