Memories Long Gone

I worked all day on this painting. I was not yet tired of the old farm house and decided to paint it in its own setting. The post oaks have nearly lost all their leaves,the red oaks next to the house still have half of theirs, and the broom weed around the house has not yet blown away. The grass is a warm ochre. This is winter in Texas this year. We actually have grass, and, like much of the rest of the US, wind. So wild fires are an issue, too. It's amazing that this old house has withstood the ravages of nature for as long as it has.

Psalm 35:17 O Lord, how long will you look on? Rescue my life from their ravages, my precious life from these lions.
