I was following directions on google maps through my phone. My destination was a lake. I was unfamiliar with the area, so it wasn’t until I had reached my destination that I realized I was several miles off course at an old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. However, as an artist, the middle of nowhere is sometimes a good place to be, so I got out my paint box.
December in Kentucky can be dreary, but the color scheme in the country is beautiful and I was loving the orange pop in the scene and the way these two trees in the foreground interacted with one another.
I sat in my car and looked out at a small lake and the reflections that were on it. The branch that sticks out of the water drew my attention, but the negative space is what made the design work for me.
