I saw this farm while on the way to Bombay Hook wildlife nature reserve on the Eastern Shore some time ago. We had left home early in the morning and I remember watching the sun come up over the water as we crossed the Bay Bridge. Mist still lay in some hollows here and there and I marveled at the colors of the clouds. A peaceful mood prevailed as another day was born - one that I felt lucky to witness. As with a lot of my work, the painting was worked on for awhile then languished for some time in the corner of my studio, it was only lately that I finally finished it off. I tried to capture the mood of that particular morning so the colors were kept somewhat muted and details only suggested. Size of the work is 12" x 16". Oil on canvas.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
