I finished Country Blessings during the Thanksgiving season. It was actually the day before Thanksgiving. It took the longest for me to complete of any of my published pieces so far because I really wanted to put a lot of effort into it. I wanted to capture the feeling of the season, the color, the grandeur of the mountains, and most importantly the feeling of home. I wanted to start with a soft darker sky in the background and layer on top of the really bright fall colors. I wanted the really bright colors in there to hint at the warmth and the joy of the season. Then, I wanted a distant mountain range to give a hint of Winter being on the way, a dark cloud to suggest a cold front is moving in. Then, the biggest thing I wanted to capture was the road to beckon you into the farm. I accomplished this technically by making the closest fence posts appear larger and get gradually smaller as you walk into the painting. I wanted it to be well lit and for you to feel like entering into the farm and then resting on the porch in one of the chairs. Some of you would want to go into the barn, and none of my paintings would be complete if it wasn’t for having several critters. Inside the barn, you will find a cow sniffing noses with a golden retriever. I also painted a squirrel in the nearest tree sitting on a branch. This is my friend, Buddy. Another thing that gives this painting special meaning is the tractor. My grandpa had a tractor that looked much like this one. I hope you feel the joy and warmth of Thanksgiving and I really hope that God blesses you as you enjoy Country Blessings.
