Anticipation

 A story starts somewhere and in this instance it started from a view below our property. As some of you know, I seldom ever introduce people or critters in my paintings. Somehow I always think a static landscape view can be read into for what it is. Figures always introduce a story in the mind of the viewer. This painting started as a “pure” landscape, i.e. no critters, but on continuing advice from my friends,the painting name changed to ‘Anticipation”. You can make of it what you will. I can look past the figures.
Hmmm, maybe I could have just called this picture “A Fall Afternoon” without the additional flesh and blood?
Your comments are always welcome.
Thanks for looking. That is what art is all about.

    Even better I (being an Old cornhusker) like

    I really like the construction of this painting. My eye has to take a little journey around the scene and do a bit of investigating on the way.

    I think the figure is a good addition to this painting. It seems to me that many times hunters just enjoy being out there even if they don’t shoot a thing–maybe that is what is happening here.
