To think about what this old abandoned homestead has seen in it`s time, yet, there is a tilled field and the old barbed wire fence is reinforced with modern angle iron...it tells one that life goes on...great painting buddy....of course, more gold...L/V

Thanks so much Dave! Life does, indeed, move on…

Doug---I have visited this scene before---however, I am appreciating even more details---and the lights and shadows---the quality of the light in the background is so familiar. Interesting description---I think we would have to lose our I-phones--and all the tech to have what they had then---possibly. LV

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thanks Nava… In talking with some of my older relatives, the "simpler times" were not so simple! I think I prefer my nat' gas furnace and air conditioning to that of a drafty, smokey, wood-burning fireplace in the winter and screen-less windows in the summer. LOL… How 'bout you?

Dave Farrow

Dave Farrow

What an awesome work of art Doug.....very masterfully done....I love the addition of the pheasants....gold medal work.....L/V

Thanks so much Dave! Hope you are well, happy new year my friend!
