"Lincoln Highway/Old Houses,Logan,Iowa"

5 x 5"
oil on panel

A new addition to my ongoing series The Lincoln Highway - where you take a sharp right to continue on Highway 30 thru the small Iowa town, Logan.

I tried something a little different today and washed a zingy pink/red on the white ground and proceeded on top of that with loose, slightly diluted oils and kept small glimpses of the ground color.  Brett says it feels like evening with that warm pink on the edges.  I love it.

I love the atmosphere this painting has - perfect small town feeling and also love the touch of pink.

Love the looseness here and the pink too.

Looks simple but interesting and feels like a cool place

You painted that moment just before twilight when the light gets warm and golden and everything seems to glow. Very, very beautiful.
