That is definitely an improvement on the silo Donna. With the earth tones in this picture it fits in nicely. Before it was the one color that really called attention to itself. It looks more natural and in place with its surroundings now.

Wow, what an analysis, and a complimentary one, at that! I really appreciate your comments! I was actually considering, after a suggestion by an art aficianado friend of mine, of changing the silo to a warmer tone, perhaps more gold or copper, than the present yellow. What's your opinion?

Richmond, VA - United States

Nice sense of depth in this painting. The gold silo really really dominates the scene. The reflection of the buildings and cattle is a nice twist of foreshadowing. Excellent upward slope in the road and ground around the front building. The dark shadow of the front barn and hint of a tractor in it really add depth. The cattle are enjoying a lazy day. The white wispy clouds on the blue sky are beautiful. You always do such nice skies I just enjoy getting lost in them. There are so many nice elements in your paintings that you over look if you just take a quick glance at it, but if you stay a minute and just gaze so many elements rise up and become apparent and take the viewer into the scene. I can tell I'm at pond level here and looking up hill to the buildings in front. You have true talent for integrating many elements of painting into many faucets of a landscape that embrace the viewer on many levels while producing an overall experience that is more than the sum of its parts. You make it look easy, but it's not.
