Still being influenced by all the old family photos. This is from the late 50's. My uncle Halley and Aunt Lila's place.

Bravo! Love this Skylar! Really brings back lots of memories for me. When I go back to Arkansas, I still like to take a day and just drive around the back roads and look at the old homesteads and barns. Great job! :) :) :) :) :) :)

Thanks Everyone! I posted this on Wet Canvas Landscapes. Got some good comments, but almost all mentioned the foreground seeming detached from the rest. So, here is a diff version. I'm not sure it is better.

The old tractor certainly adds balance to the painting, looks like an old Fordson.

Another two masterpiece Skylar:)
I prefer the second one, is much complete, balanced.
Reminds me of many old photos of our Padana countryside apart from the car: too much luxury for that time.

I'm really interested in this software. This image threw me an idea of drawing my own mind about the suburb where my relatives live;). The price seems to be good enough. But I'm more interested in painting something really creative and then making it really memorable. I'm deciding about canvas printing. What do you think about that?

I'm from Canada and I try to use local service, if possible:rolleyes:. I heard that Canadian www.bestcanvas.ca (http://www.bestcanvas.ca) offer really nice quality and prices. Anyone has purchased a picture on canvas in that company?

Thanks for ideas!
