Finished painting (Mitchell, Oregon)


If you compare this painting to its unfinished version you can see I worked on quite a bit of it. I liked the composition (thank goodness...a bad composition is basically a start over), but wanted to work on roof line at the back of the house, the shade of green onlawn and trees, etc.

This is from a sketch I did (and a photo) while I was in Mitchell in 2008. Mitchell is not quite a ghost town, but has a lot of abandoned buildings. It is really fun to paint there as there is so much to choose from. It is near the Painted Hills, but I never seem to want to paint them...look at them, yes, but their structure and their hugely pigmented horizontal lines of different stone never appeal to me in a painting.
