    Wow that is so good, from the texture in the clothing and the skin to show that weathered outdoor look to the barns out of focus in the background to give the painting such depth.

    Love this Skylar. Reminds me of my family history very much. Very soulful and beautiful. I have a photograph some where-of a distant grandfather-a farmer, his wife, and some of their thirteen children! I would love to send it to you. I will dig in and try to find it.
