Once A Proud Pioneer--Hardman, Oegon
This painting of an abandoned home in Hardman, Oregon (a very intact ghost town...mostly empty buildings...but no cute road-side-attractions; it was on the main line for shipping sheep and wool in the early 1900's)is one I painted in the last two days. I volunteered to paint on a donated canvas for an upcoming auction in Bend, Oregon...to support the arts. The canvas was supposed to be 12" x 12"...but was 20" x 20". Took more time than I thought...but it was fun sort of going a little outside my normal style...thus the Hopper comment.
