Much of my time painting over the last year has been dedicated to a work taken from a photograph from my grandmother’s photo album. Its a scene from the farm my great grand father purchased in Wisconsin in the early 1900’s. After many year so many family members resided on the same road that the city eventually named the road, Reichel Rd after my family. This painting has been in process for what seems like forever, there is clean up work still needed but it is, at long last nearly finished. Its titled Reichel Road, while the original structures are no longer standing the land is still owned by family members and the street name remains unchanged.
Let me also note that painting a child that doesn’t look creepy was a challenge.
