This started out randomly- I was looking through a cover-less encyclopedia, talking to this girl, kept grabbing pictures of stone buildings, stairs, farmland, and just began piecing them together. I must have taken near ten photos of the arrangements in-progress. But I am happy with it. Its a homestead with atmosphere...

...This is another small/med. sized acrylic I did by tacking some old, dark blue shirt fabric over something; this time a piece of book-board from an old encyclopedia. And another rendition of something I've done before, this time a little bit differently. After I paint and photograph these, I always apply a coat of protective varnish to make sure they will age well.
