New: “Red Beech”

At the start of this piece, there was no tree…just the simple lines of the old farm, the shadows cast by trees outside the picture plane, and the thin shadows within the ells of the structure. I liked the simplicity, but it was too simple…something was missing. In the actual scene, there is an ancient tree in front of the house, but it’s so old the trunk is massive, and it obscured most of the home’s entrance. Decided the thing that was missing needed to be prominent, front-and-center, so I added in the tree, transplanted it to the left of it’s actual location, and made it about 75 years younger… “Red Beech” 36 x 24
