"Promise of Living"

This is an 8" X 8" oil painting on canvas.
The sides are painted, so it is ready for hanging.

I have been thinking a lot about the subject of Americana and rural living. Recently I heard our symphony perform part of Copland's "The Tender Land" opera, which really inspired me. The title of this painting is from one song from the opera, which in turn is based on old American hymns.

Be sure to click on the image to zoom in and see the details and texture of the painting.

I use a palette knife to get a thick, flat paint layer and use brushes for smaller details.
