land beside me

Another master-piece by my sister Liz. I am enjoying seeing her work evolve and take on a new meaning. In order to be an artist, the work lies in the actual doing and letting one's work find a way by utilizing new techniques and working them through just as one would with a new exercise or diet. The results finally appear worthwhile. This is one of my favorite paintings that she has done. (Hint, Hint.) I see the calm before the storm in this work. I know that Liz has been working hard to use a limited palette and I love the end result. It is easy on the eyes. What do you see?

It feels like a lovely farm I know in upper NY state on a gray day. Familiar. Very nice piece.

That Liz always blows me aways. there is a quietness to her art that I love.

It's wonderful. I am drawn to country scenes, probably from long ago memories of visitng my granparents on their farm. What do I see? I see the quietness of the countryside but also imagine some animals in the barn, a truck kicking up dust as it drives down the gravel road...

It's gorgeous! I love the color palate. They are cool and calm with almost a pre-snow feel.
