I 80 and the Mountain Farm

On our way across I-80 last year we passed miles and miles of farmland.  It's kinda weird what sticks in your head from a trip like that.  My favorite stretch was at the beginning when we passed some areas just outside Park City, Utah around dusk.  This was an attempt to put that into paint.  Hope you enjoy as much as I did!

Nice! It just has a really nice, calm feeling to it.

What did you use to paint it?

Very calming an peaceful...but my film infested mind reckons that something bad is about to go down here! The quiet before the storm!

Recently I went on a roadtrip across much of the west--through colorado, new mexico, and texas. Obviously it was not the same area, but you beautifully captured the colors and feels of the farmland that is so wonderful. This is fabulous! I love it. :)
