    The Red Lantern...

    ...Hanging on the post by the barn. This lantern has been around so long, I don't remember where I got it. It is now solar powered, with LED lights that I put in it a few years ago (I didn't paint the cord). This is continuing that rustic theme started with the stove, etc. I've always loved this old, rusty thing, but this is the first time I have painted it. One Layer, from scratch, ref photos. Oil & AB.

    This is great Skylar, you took something simple from a so called bygone age and made it a piece of art. I love how you have still kept it rusty and aged. Well done

    Very beautiful! I learned to love this kind of still lives in some painting manuals, so I do really appreciate this genre.
    The title made me come the association with Red Lanterns which was a famous, highly valuable chinese movie of a dozen years ago.

    Nice lamp, but I associated a red lantern with "Red Light District"! What can I say, Asiatic mind!!!

    Thanks EveryBody! I'm smiling at the comments about the "Red Light" - I hadn't thought of that definition. I was thinking more along the lines of Green Lantern's Nemisis.

    Yeah, this also brings back good memories. I like the way you emphasized the rusty appearance. Congratulations, a beautiful painting.
