Silo Sunset

Close ups.

5x7 oil on gessoed hardboard.
This is my submission for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks.
This is a landscape painting of Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was done from a black and white reference photo. I love to observe sunsets, so I thought I'd refer to my memory to inject some intense color.
Hope ya like it!
